I helped a guy do knock down once. We srayed a couple of cielings, sat down and had a beer, cheaked the cielings, not dty enough yet, had an other beer. Let me tell you, that was a long day.Was wondering if someone could give me the lowdown on the stomp/knockdown texture. i.e. mud consistancy ect.
Great explanation thoughFrom my experience, its mostly the brush, If your brush is brand new, its not going to make the same design 5 houses later. Try to keep your mud as consistant as possible, he explained how to mix it, and its personal choice, whatever works best for you.
There's your problem right there....you're supposed to be using 13/16 inch roller.....der!wow I've been doing that stomp thing wrong this whole time. I always roll mud on ceiling with 3/4 inch nap roller or spray mud on ceiling and stomp with a double crows foot if your mud is wet enough it rolls right over and your done. If your talking about knocking down your stomp texture (I call that hillbilly lace) you would just leave mud thicker when tacks up knockdown.
Oh yeah...those were the days alright:thumbsup::no: That's hard work on a summer day with all the windows sealed up tight. So much moisture your cigarette goes out:laughing:years ago ,,way back,,, and about the last time I ever used any type of brush to texture with,, the man I was working for at the time ,, Used his spray rig to shoot the mud on.. I had to run like hell with the double brush to keep up , Turned out super nice on the finish
