I know that Homax sells a knockdown/orange-peel spray made for ceilings, but the ratings weren't great and the Pro Grade formula sounds better, although it is made for walls. Will it spray upward well for application to my ceiling?

Don't use the knockdown for walls on the ceiling. It is meant for walls. Use the appropriate product for the appropriate job.

Probably not very well. the cans are expensive and forget about texturing an area the size the can says. Not to mention the rate at which the cans clog and lose pressure. Depending on the size of the area you're covering you'd be better off buying a hopper for $60 and a bucket of dry texture for about $25. It'll most certainly be easier and may save you money.

Probably not very well. the cans are expensive and forget about texturing an area the size the can says. Not to mention the rate at which the cans clog and lose pressure. Depending on the size of the area you're covering you'd be better off buying a hopper for $60 and a bucket of dry texture for about $25. It'll most certainly be easier and may save you money. You'll need a compressor for the hopper as well, but you can rent those or maybe borrow one from a buddy.
If that sounds like too much trouble for you, hire the job out. The cans aren't worth the trouble

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. The Pro Grade Wall texture is designed for walls only. Since wall textures have straws that go deep down in the can. If the can is tilted, the texture will not have a way to reach the tube so coverage will be very limited.

Answer: 
Allow 30 minutes to dry before paining. Thick texture or high humidity and low temperature will lengthen the dry time.

Eddy,
The product dries pretty fast. You can tell because of the color of the textured area will go from a dark pinkish white when wet, to all white when dry. I must warn you though, that the dry time will be dependent on the humidity level inside the building and in the area that you are trying to repair. The more humid it is, the faster it will take to dry. I would not recommend trying to force dry Read More
Eddy,
The product dries pretty fast. You can tell because of the color of the textured area will go from a dark pinkish white when wet, to all white when dry. I must warn you though, that the dry time will be dependent on the humidity level inside the building and in the area that you are trying to repair. The more humid it is, the faster it will take to dry. I would not recommend trying to force dry it with any type of heating gun, or blow dryer as it make cause the texture to crack.
When I applied it, mine was dry within 8 hours, but I let it set overnight just to be sure. What I would suggest is that you apply it at night, right before you settle down for the night, and then let it dry while you sleep, and then paint in the AM if it is dry.
You also didn't say how much of an area you had to do. DO NOT use a heavy hand with the trowel when knocking this down. Get the trowel as close to parallel with the wall as you can and let it just skim over the texture without putting pressure. Make sure you wait before knocking down. Do not spray and immediately knock down or all you will do is make flat mud, and you don't want that. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Pleased, but read for full understanding I purchased this product to restore a 12"x76" section of drywall that was replaced in a kitchen after removal of tile, and outlet relocations required the removal of the section. I watched several YouTube videos of this product to gain knowledge of it and how it worked before I purchased it. I read some of the reviews and saw folks had some difficulties, so here is what I learned about using the product. First, read the packaging thoroughly. Re-read to make sure you understand exactly what the instructions say. Shake the can upside down. If you think you shook enough, shake some more. Even after that, shake a little bit more. Depending on the size of your job, work in small sections. Each time you do a section, shake the can again for several minutes. Intermittent mixing is necessary. You must allow 1-2 minutes once the product is on the wall to "dry". How humid your work area is will have an impact on this time. The more humid it is, a little more time is necessary before knocking down. You will have to gauge this as you work. Spray from a distance minimum of 6-8". Do not get closer or you will "blob" up the works and it will not perform as stated on the can. Work in an up and down motion, in columns. Once finished in your section, wipe the nozzle but be careful not to hit the trigger or more your settings. Use a flat blade knockdown trowel around 6-8 inches. Dip the trowel in warm water, and shake the water excess off, but make sure the blade is still wet. It should have a sheen of water on it, no more than that. Lay the trowel as parallel to the wall surface as you can and let the handle simple lay in "U" of your thumb and pointing finger socket. Let the natural weight of the trowel do the work. No force is necessary. Let the trowel come down and it will knock the sprayed material down very nicely. You will know if you pressed too hard if the sides of the trowel caused a line mark as you travel down the wall area. No problem. Move the trowel over so that 1/3 of the trowel overlaps the line where the knockdown ended on the previous pass, and repeat the process. It will smooth itself out. Here are pictures of the finished result. You cannot tell the difference between the original knockdown and the replacement. It blends in perfectly. I did have other areas to do on adjacent walls in the kitchen which were equal to the 12"x76" drywall I replaced. The 25% can had less than a quarter can left when I was done. Application was MEDIUM and according to instructions. I believe the stated area coverage on the can is a little overstated, as the manufacturer's application style may not be the same as yours. Judge your job accordingly and purchase what you need. You can always return to your Home Depot any unused, undamaged product, in original sale condition for a refund. I hope this review helps someone who needs to do his/her repair job. Take your time, read the instructions, shake, shake, shake, work in small areas. Do not rush, but take your time, and your project will come out like a pro. March 13, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good product for small repairs Fairly easy to use for small repairs;but the can runs low on air pressure before product, even with shaking the can before and during use also keep in mind the heavy setting covers up to 35 sq ft, it took 2 cans for me to cover 50 sq ft. August 17, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great on walls If you are a DIY'ER and are going to use it on the walls it's awesome however if you are going to use this on the ceiling think again before purchasing if using on the ceiling it will clog and not work the pressure volume ratio is not good. August 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not What You Expect Poor design of pressure/volume controls result in frustration. The instructions are just plain wrong on how long to wait to knock-down product, you need to wait as long as it takes to set up. But the controls are worthless, can't get product to spray yet it drools down the can despite manic shaking, not worth the effort! July 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff is garbage The product spits out in "balls" and you have to be an inch from the wall to ensure it doesn't land on the floor instead. When you knock it down, it sticks to your tool, no matter how much water you use on the tool. The price is ridiculous, even if it did work. July 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not worth the Money Purchased this product on Sunday. Followed all the directions, watched all the video's and should have read the reviews more carefully. Had to repair about a 32 foot linear area that was repaired and needed to be textured. Purchased 2 cans and both ran out of pressure before being empty and as the pressure reduced in the can the spray became erratic. In the end, spent last night removing the texture and will be going back to to see if Home Depot will refund the money. May 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money Use as instructed and its like it runs out of pressure. Starts off strong but then it doesn't spray very well. Try clearing it out upside down. Shaking a lot. Eventually it just drools out and is useless. And there is a lot of stuff left in the can. June 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stuff for small patches My dog would lay against the wall and make dirty spots and scratch the drywall with his nails leaving a bare spot. I washed the wall and let it dry. Then I applied the wall knockdown per instructions. Unlike drywall patch, it puts little blotches on the wall. I let it almost dry, per instructions, and knocked it down with a trowel. Now you'd never know that anything happened to the wall because the texture is there. The nozzle is adjustable so that it could make the popcorn look that is not knocked down. June 27, 2013
