spray can texture


I was wondering if anyone has used that texture in a can before? and how good does it actually work? I am thinking about trying it for a tiny patch instead of bringing the big texture machine unit in. If it works like crap then i won't even bother with it and waste my time any money on it.

Re: spray can texture


I haven't had good experience with it on knock-down (too gummy to match good) but for small orange-peel fixes it has been ok. But at like $13 a can i'll just carry around some +3 in a bucket with a lid & bring out the pancake compressor & hopper & make a much better repair if i need to & save $12 of the $13

Maybe others have had better experiences, but that is my experience with the stuff.

Re: spray can texture


Gave up on the cans years ago!

Unless they have gotten a lot better, which I doubt, I wouldn't waste my money on them.

Hopper and copressor is quick enough for me.

Re: spray can texture


The cans suck. I go to Sherwin Williams a lot and they gave me some new sample cans to try. It was a small can and it was for orange peel. It works good. But i havent seen any other ones

Re: spray can texture


I use them some for SMALL patches, not the big ones. Make sure to test on some scrap. As with a lot of things in life guys.....it's all in the wrist...*ahem* lol.

Yep, they suck for popcorn, no doubt. I've used the Homax brand OIL based one for small orange peel patches. The latex kind sucks.

Re: spray can texture


We use the cans alot.. problem we have with them is they get a beady look unless you shake them for a long long time.. once you get them shook well they do fine. The homax brand is the only brand weve had good luck with and the knockdown style and acoustic is a waste of money.
