TYPES OF DRYWALL TEXTURES AND APPLICATION PROCESS
A type of drywall texturing commonly used in ceilings, although less and less common. Popcorn ceilings can be a big hit, or a miss, depending on the construction design. These ceilings, which were very popular during the 1970s, have a rather noticeable texture that can go well with your decor, or conversely can completely clash. The advantages of popcorn ceilings of this style is that they can cover up very obvious construction defects and mistakes by their pronounced design, and they provide a bit of sound insulation. On the other hand, some of the disadvantages of the popcorn ceiling is the very strong shadow effect that can visually darken your space and make wall colors inconspicuous.
The drywall texture commonly known as orange peel, while it may look similar to the popcorn texture, is much softer and more delicate. The design of this type of texture is most commonly used on ceilings, however, its rough texture with craters very similar to the skin of an orange, allows the mud to adhere much easier to the walls, so it is also used to texture walls. This type of drywall texturing, like popcorn, is done with a spraying machine.
Comb type drywall texturing is a great way to add elegance to a room. This texture creates the effect of a half fan, which makes the ceiling look more modern. To make this type of textured wall finishes, you need a notched edge trowel, on which you apply clay and then spread it on the surface, creating half-fan effect. In this way, you will be able to complete the work over the entire area.
The stucco effect, is considered one of the simplest drywall texturing techniques, it is a way of texturing walls by hand and is done by wetting a long haired roller or sponge, in a putty mixture and then applying it to the wall or ceiling, exerting a little pressure towards the surface. This will give you a smooth effect of multiple long and short hairs on the wall or ceiling. Because of its smoothness and simplicity, this type of drywall texture is not recommended on surfaces with noticeable defects or repairs, as they will not be covered in their entirety.
This technique for texturing a plaster wall is called crow’s feet because of the brush used. Crow’s feet texturing is done with two oval brushes mounted side by side. This type of drywall texture is a great alternative if you want the texture to be neater or if you want to texture a ceiling with half steps.
A new drywall texturing technique is the skipped trowel, this style puts an artistic twist on the standard texture used on all drywall. First, installers apply a stucco mud to the entire ceiling or wall. Next, the still-wet mud is covered with a clean, flat trowel, which should be held at a slight angle. Then, while the first layer is still wet, a second layer of mud is applied over the first. This second layer lifts the dry wall pieces, creating uneven sections with cracks and peaks. Which makes the design dependent on the thickness of the layer applied and the movement made by the professional drywall and texture contractor.
This drywall texturing, as the name implies, consists of the technique of removing or knocking down the putty by dragging a knife over the surface of the plaster, seeking to flatten it. This is the reason it is sometimes referred to as drop spraying or footfall spraying. The only difference is how the original texture has been applied: by spraying, by stepping or by some other technique. The tumbling effect can be done with any knife or trowel, however, there are special tools that make a more uniform effect, as well as getting the right angle.
When doing a knockdown texture, specialized drywall and texture contractors will use a thicker putty than they would otherwise use. In addition, they will make sure to let the mixture sit on the surface before knocking it down, so let the mixture sit, without letting it dry completely, this will ensure that the texture does not disappear. Although it may seem simple to perform, this type of drywall texturing, as well as the others, should be done by a professional drywall texturing company, which will give you the guarantees of a uniform and quality texture on walls and ceiling.
Among the most requested types of drywall textures is the rosebud texture, so called because it resembles the shape of a round flower petal with a central bud and radiating petals. The technique of making rosebud texture is the same as that of stucco painting by hand, but it is applied evenly so that each stroke is clearly visible and does not overlap others.
In sand swirl texture, the comb texture and powdered sand texture are combined. These methods consist of applying the paint with a brush and a sponge, respectively. The swirls are created by running the brush or sponge over a previously prepared mixture or by dipping a foam pad and dragging it across the wall drawing the swirls.
Although Venetian drywall texture is unlikely to be requested, it is important to mention that during this process plaster mixed with marble dust is used, several thin layers of mixture are applied and then buffed to give a smooth, polished appearance. This very old premixed texture was very common for its elegant and decorative finish.
