Plaster textures can greatly affect the appearance of your spaces and if we add an excellent paint job, you can create a very professional finish.

There are two methods of applying drywall textures, manual and by machine, the main advantage offered by hand texturing is that the contractor becomes an artist who can create the look you want is the surface of your work canvas, everything depends mainly on your skill, experience, and imagination.
These textures can be applied with an air gun that pulverizes the textured material on the surface or by a manual technique, to create personalized effects that provide a professional appearance of beauty, elegance, and differentiation to your walls and ceilings.
Deciding what type of plaster textures are going to be applied to a surface should go hand in hand with the final design desired for that space, whether residential or commercial, since designs such as circles and swirls, combed swirls, among others, can be applied.
Before proceeding with the texture of the wall, all furniture and floor are protected, either from dust or splashes. After acquiring the compounds and tools necessary to texture the walls, the walls to be textured should be cleaned and dried completely.
The preparation before texturing the walls begins with sandpaper on the drywall, this will make the surface smoother when applying the texture. This process should be applied at the interior and exterior angles of the panels. When sanding the wall, apply light pressure to avoid ruining it. Wearing protective equipment such as goggles and dust masks when sanding is highly recommended.
After the sanding process, the remains of dust and any substance that dirties the surface must be removed, it can be with a damp cloth, and then go on to a process of preparation prior to texturing to obtain better results.
This process of preparation prior to texturing is known as a primer and involves the application of a precoating to the surface that gives it a projection and better adhesion to the compound to be applied to the wall.
The compound to texture must have consistency before being applied, for this reason, it is recommended to mix it a little until it is created, make sure you mix the compound enough before texturing the wall.
Now the adhesive tape is applied and the ends of the tape are cut with a spatula or knife, then the joint compound is applied to the wall to be textured. A sponge is then applied to the compound by pressing the sponge against the wall several times to create a general texture on the wall. After this texture has dried you can start painting to give the final finishes.
