Answer: 
I got an orange peel texture using just plain wall paint, but I had to go over it over and over again to keep it from sagging until it started to dry and stiffened enough to hold its shape. I probably wouldn't want to do it that way again.

Answer: 
Remember that this roller cover does not create texture with just any paint. You must use a paint specifically designed as a "texture paint". Then this roller will create random, unique texture patterns as you roll it through the coating.

Answer: 
Most texture roller covers are made with rows of uniform loops, giving a very noticeable pattern. This roller cover produces a random pattern of varying depths & heights that is similar to the look of a textured ceiling when it's stuccoed. It only produces this effect however with a texture paint. Regular wall/ceiling paint does not have enough body to give a textured finish. Trowel the texture paint Read More

Answer: 
Unfortunately most mud is mixed too thin to get a significant texture effect from this roller. If the mud is thick enough, there will be some effect from the roller. My advice would be to experiment on some scrap and see if you can get the desired effect.

Absolutely! That's exactly what I used it for. My old townhome had textured walls - kind of a spray on, not knocked down texture. When I had to patch a damaged section, I used this roller to add texture. I mixed the mud a bit thin, and let it set up for a few minutes before rolling it on. It blended nicely with the other texture when I feathered it out.
I also got brave and did a roll on textured Read More

I also got brave and did a roll on textured ceiling with it. I mixed the mud a bit thicker for that job. Talk about a mess, but it came out great. Read Less

Better 9 in. x 3/8 in. Loop Texture Roller Cover is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smaller Texture than Most Walls Just finished my project with some helpful notes. The texture from this roller is very small and doesn't give you a "splattered" look. So if you are trying to match walls (like I did), you will not be successful. The texture comes off small with a pinpoint finish. It will probably take 4x the amount of time to roll vs. machine and requires a lot of rolling per 2x2 area. Once you get one wall completely covered, go back with a dry/thick nap roller to knock down the points to your liking. I was happy with the ease, but it was very time consuming.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but with difficulty. This roller didn't come with any instructions or guidance regarding how to use it or what kind of product to use it with. I used it with regular latex wall paint on a smooth wall, trying to get an orange peel texture. I had to immerse it in the roller tray to saturate it with LOTS of paint, and roll it on really thick. Then I had to press kind of hard and keep going over it to deposit enough on the wall to completely cover the surface. Doing this initially produced the orange peel texture that I wanted. But as I moved along the wall, the thick wet paint started to sag. I had to keep retracing my steps, going back over it to repeatedly perk it up until the paint got dry enough to stiffen and hold its shape. Also there was the problem of getting into small spaces, like between the window molding and the adjacent wall. I'd need a 3" roller, but they don't seem to sell it in that size. In the end I got the texture that I wanted, but used 2 to 3 times as much paint as it normally would have taken cover the area, and it was a lot of work. If I was doing a couple of larger rooms it would have been better to rent a sprayer to apply texture first, then paint. But I was just redoing a small bathroom, about 150 square feet of wall, and I wanted an alternative to masking everything, renting a sprayer, setting it up, then having to clean it up and return it, just for that small space. I'm intending to give this roller one more try on a future job, using drywall compound instead of paint, to see if it goes on easier and the texture holds its shape without sagging. If that works, it's way cheaper than fifteen to twenty bucks a can for spray, and way easier than renting a sprayer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like this roller We took out a section of drywall to install some new plumbing. After replacing the drywall section, I treated the cut line as if it were just a large crack. I used a putty knife and jammed a couple of layers of drywall mud into the crack. Sanded that down a bit then rolled a texture coat over the whole wall. Used some thinned mud and one of these rollers. Worked pretty good, and easy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for what I needed I scraped down the popcorn in my bathroom ceiling during a remodel. I needed to put something back up there and decided on a roll-on texture. I used this in combination with the easy-sand 45 joint compound. The finished product looked great. Not sure how much money I saved over hiring a pro, but I spent 8 bucks on the joint compound and 7 bucks on this roller, and about 2 hours of my afternoon. Make sure you take your time and roll slowly to avoid splattering, especially if doing a ceiling. I had my entire bathroom, including walls, covered in plastic, and a massive piece of cardboard on the floor, and I'm glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unique look We remodeled the house which is 25 years old. Time was not an issue so we opted to go with the textured roller vs. buying a small hand held texture sprayer. It takes longer but the results are worth the effort. The roller had a good nap for leaving a unique look. The more directions you roll the joint compound the uniform the finished texture looks. We went up-down, left-right, diagonal for a thick orange peel look then gave it a light knock down. We were really happy with the results. Mixing the joint compound to a thick paint or milkshake consistency makes it workable. We rolled enough mud to just about cover the wall. It easily covered the poor, fast job the 2 bit contractor did originally without having to cover everything or empty the room. Work slow for less mess & splatter and don't try to cover too much area at one time. On big walls the joints covered with no lines or issues when only doing 4' X 4' sections unlike the old knock down lines that we covered up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets The Job Done! Excellent Nap" "I used this product to texture a wall for a client with mud (Joint Compound) and it came out fantastic. This is a great nap! It applies well and cleans well for a 2nd use. I will be using this one again for other jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Word great I'm a professional painter. This roller worked great to match an existing heavy knockdown texture on a remodel job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from average not as much texture as I expected - not bad if you know what to expect. perhaps a sample of the finish should be attached to product.
