A total waste of money. This product should be taken off of the shelves. I did a sheetrock repair under a window. I primed the patched area twice, let it dry, then applied this "texture" as directed. At first I though it would be okay, but as it dried it practically disappeared. The finial results was a smooth surface with a few small bumps. Nothing that approached being texture.

You will save yourself a lot of time and frustration by taking $14.00 and throwing it in the garbage can.
It is useless for touching-up a patch on the ceiling, flow is unpredictable, way too watery.....and yes I did shake the can more than you could possibly need to...but still hit and miss results. Better off buying an actual hopper compared to the time and money wasted trying get this product to do what it claims.

The product is a total waste of money and time. The company should recall all their products, They put Spray Tex out of business, which was the only texture product that worked properly and gave consumers junk. I found it to be too watery and called their customer service to ask for help. They sent me a can from their factory, and it was the very same watery mess, even after shaking for 10 min.

I've always used homax orange peel wall texture whether spraying walls or ceilings. In fact I've used the wall texture on all our ceilings after we scraped off the dated popcorn texture. However, I decided to try the "ceiling" one this time for the last bedroom. Terrible mistake. I followed the usual instructions of well shaking the product and using a scrap piece of card board for the initial spray, then proceeded to try and spray the texture to the ceiling after installing the applicator straw. While spraying I held the can 12"-18" away from the ceiling as instructed on the can and I even tried other distances. NO mater where I held the can the majority of the texture ended up any where but the ceiling. A small fraction of the texture actually stuck to the ceiling, however the majority fell to the floor. Hormax's so called ceiling applicator can could not actually spray the texture on the ceiling. I will grab one more can of the normal wall orange peel and use it to finish the job, but I will never buy this ceiling texture again! I strongly suggest you don't

This product saves me time and money. From reading some of the other revue I can see that the instruction are not being followed. I wish Home Depot would keep this stock on their shelves.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rroque Terrible product
Against my good judgement, i bought 2 cans to do a very small job. Nozzle clogs and drips. Material is way to watery. Compressed air ran out before i could even get to half the can. I followed the directions to the tee but the product is just garbage. It was more like colored water soaking into the wall. I cant believe that this product was approved for the market. Taking the used and the unused stuff back for a refund. If this product worked for you then you just got lucky that you got a good can out of the millions sold. More power to you. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME.

Will you need to shake these cans until your arms want to fall off? Yes
Do you need to protect EVERY surface in your room? Yes
Will you come out looking like you were flocked? Yes
Do you need 3-4 times more product than the can advertises? Yes
Will it hide a major patch job on a plaster ceiling that had previously been covered by a drop ceiling? It sure will.
Definitely worth the extra two cans and the scrubbing in the shower afterwards.
Not sure why so many people had such trouble with this, it was a quick learning curve for us. Perhaps they've changed up the formula? I almost didn't buy this after all the poor reviews, but my dad (who was a house painter) insisted it would work. Glad I listened to dad. I suggest you give it a try. Worst that happens is you scrape it off, get your money back, and try a different product.
