Need to add grit additive to paint for outside basement cement wall

There already is a sort of grit in the existing paint on the outside basement vertical wall surface. The paint job is quite old and some sections have this grit and some do not. For consistency I am hoping to repaint using paint with similar grit. What do you call this .... grit...? If I have the name I could search and purchase it.

thank you!
Dave

Sand texture. Depends where you shop what brand they will have.

I haven't used sand texture paint additive in a long long time. It comes in 3 grades; fine, medium and coarse. Probably your best bet to find some would be a paint store.
