How do you texture a wall?

Texturing is really easy and there are several different choices to create the look you want. here we explain 7 ways for texturing a wall.

1.Sand Texture
As the name implies, this mix comes with sand mixed in to create this texture. Put it in a paint roller pan and then use a roller to apply it. If you want your surface to be a little more delicate, add some water to the mix. This method of wall texture, is going to give your walls a smooth, subtle texture.

Because of the sand, the surface is raised from the wall giving you a slightly three-dimensional look. After this dries, you can paint it any color you want.

2.Smooth Texture
Again, pour out a little bit of the texture into a paint roller pan and use a roller to apply it to the wall. The difference between this and sand texture is we’re going to use a coarse napped roller to apply this texture to the wall. This of wall texture, method is going to give us a different look.

Cover the wall entirely with the texture. Then come back with the roller, and here’s where you can get creative. If you push down hard on the roller, you can get a smooth look. Or, if you lightly drag the roller across this texture, the coarse nap of the roller pulls it up off the wall a little bit, and you get a different look.

3.Rough Texture
Again, use a coarse napped roller to apply this texture. And it, like the others, comes pre-mixed. Coat the roller as you apply this to the wall and cover the entire surface. Then take the roller and lightly pull it across the texture to pull it off the wall and create a rough finish.

This method of wall texture, gives you a deeper, more scattered textured look. However, it’s going to be kind of sharp after it dries. This method is not a good texture to put in a child’s bedroom or playroom because brushing up against it could scratch the baby’s soft skin.

4.Sponge Stippling Texture
In wall texture, You can use a smooth texture mix for this application, but since using a sponge, add some water to the texture to make it more workable. Put some smooth texture in a roller pan, then use a sponge to apply the surface to the wall. Depending on what type of sponge you use, you can create all sorts of patterns.

The sponge creates the stippling or puckered pattern on the wall. And the great thing about this is that if you don’t like the way, you can change sponges or twist and drag the sponge to create your custom look.

5. Crow’s Foot
This pattern is created by buying the crow’s foot applicator. It looks like a dust mop. Once again, use smooth texture for this application. Dip the crow’s foot applicator into the soft texture and then apply it to the wall. Just keep rotating the applicator around and push against the wall as you go to get the look you want. Once you paint it, the texture pops!

6.Monterrey Texture
Again, use smooth texture and a 6″ drywall blade. You can also use a wider blade if you want. It just depends on your sense of style and what you’re trying to create. Take the edge and scoop up some texture and apply it to the wall. You want the surface used to be thick but not rough.

Apply it to the wall in short strokes. As you do, you’ll see little ridges pop up. This method of wall texture paint, creates the relief you want on the wall and will give the wall its excellent texture. Once it dries, add some paint, some stain, and then coat the wall with a finishing glaze, and it gives you a costly textured look.

7.Knock Down
To apply this texture, you need a hopper gun, an air compressor which you can rent from a tool outlet or home center. Once again, use a smooth surface, but you’ll need to add quite a bit of water to thin it out enough so you can spray it through the hopper.

Turn on the compressor, pull the trigger on the hopper gun. And the texture is squirted or splattered on the wall. The technique of applying this texture is called “splatter drag.” Why? First, you splash it on the wall, holding the hopper gun 18″-24″ away from the wall. Then you let it dry for 15-20 minutes, come back with a plastic blade, and drag it over the texture. This method is called the “knockdown.”
