Re: Knockdown sponge


Pretty good patching technique. Very good concept. Enjoyed the video. Good job.

Properly spelling the word sponge might help boost sales however...

These texture cans also work pretty good for patching and you don't require spray rigs, hoses or any of that crap.

Re: Knockdown sponge


Does the sponge fit in your pan? It seems like you could load it faster by dipping and wiping on the edge of the pan.

I like the question about sizes, especially since there are so many patterns out there it'd be nice to have a variety.

I usually have a stiff bristled brush for the small stuff, and I load the brush with mud, and then pull the bristles back to make it "spray". I don't flick the brush toward the wall, I flick the bristles. Works good for tiny stuff, but there's still some localized masking so I don't make a mess.

Cans suck for knockdown, IMO

Interesting technique....

Re: Knockdown sponge


Slim,, I would think a Hawk would work great for this application, just press into the mud and wipe the sponge off the edge of the hawk.
Thank for the vid MR. I come across some very heavy KD textures that have been applied with a spary rig. There always tough to match up with small patch sprayer I have.

I agree, but if you need a looser mix to get the pattern flatter to the wall the pan would be ideal.

Either way, it's a good idea....that could use some tweaking.

Although, I foresee a future where there will be no knockdown....it's a beautiful utopia.
