Texture Spraying and Knockdown Texture Painting In Northwest Arkansas
Add more visual interest or easily hide nicks and dings to your walls with a textured finish. Knockdown, orange peel, and popcorn finishes look beautiful in any home or commercial space.
Orange Peel Textured Spraying
Orange peel is a popular spray-on texture because it hides imperfections but is not as dramatic as a popcorn texture. Orange peel texture does not require any trowel work. It does require a professional spray applicator to control the dimple size, as well as plenty of drying time.
Popcorn Textured Spraying
While many people are removing older popcorn ceilings, newer, more updated versions of the popcorn texture are going up. Used in commercial settings for its acoustic sound dampening properties, today's popcorn texture is visually more crisp with distinct peaks and valleys.
One of the most popular textured spray finishes today is "knockdown". The knockdown texture has three types: mud trowel, splatter and stomp. All have textured relief characteristics but feature a distinct look.
- Mud Trowel: Used in home and commercial settings, "mud trowel" provides the most subtle texture. Using a drywall trowel with a curved-blade, drywall mud is applied over the surface and then skimmed off to create a subtle relief. This technique requires several coats, expert technique, and longer drying time.
- Splatter: The least expensive and quickest to apply option, splatter has the look of Spanish stucco. A drywall hopper gun is used to spray walls or ceilings with wet drywall mud or joint compound. After spraying surfaces, peaks are flattened with a knockdown knife. This creates a subtler look than stomp with a subtle raised texture that leaves around 60 percent of the surface flat.
- Stomp: Provides a nubby more elevated texture than splatter or mud trowel. Using a thin mix of drywall mud, a paint roller is used to apply it to a wall or ceiling. To create the spikes, a crows-foot brush is stomped into the mud before it is flattened with a standard knockdown knife.
