Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lorraine Best Purchase Ever
This paint was just what I was looking for, there were blank spots on my ceiling where the paint was falling off, I used kilz on each and every spot, after they all dried I painted them with this texture paint, I tried to use a roller, but it became too heavy, so I tossed the roller and used a very good brush and covered every spot, my ceiling now looks brand spanking new. I am so proud of myself I am 70 years old and I did it all by myself, up and down the latter. I covered about 12 spots, and it looks GOOD. this paint is the balm. to those of you who have the old fashion popcorn ceiling try this texture and just cover the spots. to remove the whole ceiling can be very expensive and will cause a lot of dust. so try painting over the spots, I think you will be happy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TASO Good Solution, Better Than Spray On Can
Tried this stuff after I used the spray on texture, which looked terrible. My popcorn ceilings had been professionally sprayed on so I wasn't expecting a miracle when using the Behr product. I was actually surprised at the resulits, not an exact match by any means but definitely far better results than with the spray on texture. Unless you are trying to match really extreme, large textured popcorn I wouldn't use a loop roller as suggested....I started off with the loop roller but ended up using a standerd roller designed for rough surfaces, had a much better result. I patched a pretty large area (6' X 6') and it came out looking solid, would work even better for smaller patch jobs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kimberlyink Paint with Texture
product itself is great and created an even amount of texture. We had
to blend a NEW wall with previously textured walls, and they blended
good. One downfall to the product is it came in two gallon amounts
only, and i needed less than a gallon for one wall. It would have been
more convenient to have a product added to my gallon of chosen paint. I
purchased the behr brand paint originally because it is a SINGLE COAT
paint, but with the texture in two gallons, they can not add paint to
it, so I ended up paying more for the single coat paint, and still had
to do two applications.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Logman01 Cheaper than spray texture but not as good.
It is much harder to use than regular paint. A lot goes a little way as someone previously said. However, for under $30 I covered my bathroom ceiling. It isn't perfect my any sense, but it does the job. You have to work hard to get it to come out even and then it still is pretty think.
I used a semi-rough roller that seemed to work ok. With any roller it will be MESSY! Cover EVERYTHING! I think this would work well for small patch jobs of less than a square foot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by chrissycat Horrible way to paint a ceiling!
This product is horrible to use! It is messy, messy, messy. No matter how careful you are, you WILL get more paint on the floor ( and yourself) than you will on the ceiling. It is difficult to work with and not at all what I had expected from a Behr paint. I used an indoor primer for the ceiling and followed the instructions as listed on the ceiling paint label. However, it seemed that the popcorn paint would not adhere to the primed ceiling. Allow yourself as much time for clean-up as you do for painting your ceiling with this product, as it gets on EVERYTHING. Even though I had all furniture and surfaces covered when I painted my ceiling, I still had an almost 2 hour clean-up afterward. I enjoy painting, but this project -- with this product- was a nightmare. I would not recommend it to anyone.

This product was so thick that there is no way that it could be spread with a roller - think marshmello fluff. Watering the product down did get it to a usable product and it did end up matching my existing ceiling. Using a normal roller instead of a loop roller also worked better. I do not think I should need to modify the product to make it work - maybe the instruction should include information on watering it down.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by agpaint awful stuff, waste of time and money
I had a pretty big ceiling patch to make after removing a big recessed light. I opted for this product over the aerosol cans that do not go very far, or having to deal with the mess of a hopper gun. What a waste of time and money. The only thing i accomplished was to become completely frustrated. I followed the vauge instuctions, mixed it well, and primed first.The problem was that it does not stick to the roller. I tried all different naps, but only had the same results. It seems that if you were able to get paint on the roller, it just pushes into it when you roll it. Don't waste your time with this stuff. I just hope I can get my money back!
