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.

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 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by SCPOUSNretired Looks GREAT!
My first attempt looked OK when I rolled it on. But I decided to try putting it on with a hopper gun. I set the air pressure at 40 PSI and thinned the paint with approx 1 cup of water. This looks GREAT! I'm removing old popcorn and this is what will be throughout my house. It took me a month working with different textures and techniques, this is the easiest. The toughest part was taping everything and covering the floor. I had my master bedroom re-textured a few years ago. Not only does my work look better than the knockdown, but cost a FRACTION of the cost. The only problem I have is my compressor is only 6 gallon, so I have to stop and let the compressor catch up. But with the money I'm saving I'm getting a much bigger compressor tomorrow. The best part is "MY WIFE LOVES IT"!

Ok so it works but it flys every we're.i used a brush and did one brush stroke at a time then blended it in ..it's very SLOW and messy .take your time and work the sand to blend it together so you don't see brush marks ...and good luck

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.
