Homax wall texture mix
Scrap piece of drywall or cardboard
Homax wall texture is designed to spray or roll on the interior walls to give the walls texture. It is a premium-quality wall texture product that can be mixed to range from full coverage to an orange peel or splatter finish. Homax wall texture is not designed as a finish coat; it requires a final top coat of paint. The wall texture hides any blemishes you may have on your wall, or it can be applied to brick.
Pour 1 1/2 gallons of water into a clean bucket for the spray-on application. Slowly mix in the texture, using a drill-type mixer on low for best results. Once the powder is saturated with water, turn the drill up and mix thoroughly. Use caution not to splatter the wall texture out of the bucket. Let the mixture set for 15 minutes. Remix the wall texture before pouring it into the sprayer for use.
Test the spray-on application on a scrap piece of drywall or cardboard to ensure the consistency is correct for the method and pattern you desire. Add water to the mixture to get a more orange peel look. The thicker the mixture, the greater a heavy splatter or knockdown effect will be achieved.
Pour 1 gallon of water into a clean bucket for the roller or towel application, and then slowly pour the wall texture into the water. Stir the mixture with a drill-type mixer on low for the best results. Let the mixture set for 15 minutes, then remix when ready to apply the wall texture. Add more water if you desire a thinner mixture. Test your method on a scrap piece of drywall or cardboard to ensure the mix gives you the texture you want.
