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: 
It will depend on your application as to how light or heavy you want to go with the pattern. I would say an average would be an area of a 4x8 sheet of plywood, which is 32 square feet. The heavier a pattern you use the smaller the area of coverage will be. Make sure you read the instructions, shake, shake, shake, and when you think you have shaken enough, shake a little more, and work in small areas. One Read More

One to two minutes drying before knockdown, depending on the humidity in your work area. You will be able to tell as you work and make adjustments accordingly.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 35 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pure and utter garbage Do not buy this product unless you like tossing money out the window. 1/4 way through the can and it runs out of propellant. I shook the can for 2 minutes and what ended up on the wall was a runny mess. Tossed the remaining can in the trash. Never again. If I have a small repair I will just break out the knock down gun and air compressor. Don't waste your money folks. March 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow! I can't tell where I repaired the drywall. Very good product I'm a homeowner. After reading the reviews, I decided to try this product. Warm the can in lukewarm water for at least 20 minutes shaking about every 5 minutes. Continue shaking the can after warming for a least a couple minutes while holding it upside down. I used the light spray first and allowed it to dry and then used the medium setting. Let it set for a t least 20 minutes in 70 deg. temperatures before knocking it down. Clean up: After holding the can upside down and clearing the product, I held the nozzle in a container of warm water, pulled the trigger and cleaned the tip. It worked properly the next time I used it. January 14, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Can needs improvement. I used approximately 5 oz. of the 25 oz. can. Then I turned it upside down and sprayed to clear the nozzle before storing it as the directions state you must do. About two weeks later when I needed to spray more knockdown, I found the can clogged even after turning it upside down and shaking it. After removing the nozzle and using air to clear any material then soaking it in hot water to warm the can it's still clogged. This product is too expensive to fail so easily. I doubt I'd buy the product again if it clogs so easily and is hard to unclog. Judging by some of the reviews, I'm not the only one having a problem with a clogged spray can. November 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Absolute waste of money I have tried both the pro and the regular cans of knockdown texture and neither one works. The nozzle clogged and would not spray after about 3 seconds of use. What did come out was so runny it just dripped down the wall like water, despite having shaken the can for over a minute as per the instructions. The Homax wall texture mix that you use with a Hopper Gun works very well, but this stuff is complete garbage. Don't waste your money. February 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Excellent knock down spray. Performs as advertised, easy to use, does the job. Even a brginner could use this effectively. February 6, 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
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to use. Very disappointed. I followed the directions to the letter. When knocking it down, it tended to smear rather than flatten. They recommend covering the wall about 70-80% but when I encountered this problem I tried using several difference coverage amounts between about 25% and 90% and I could not get it to look decent. They say to not let it sit for longer than 1-2 minutes before knocking it down. It is so thin within that time window that it just smears. I spoke to a contractor who did some texturing at my house and he thought it should sit for much longer than what they recommend. So, I used it once and then put it away for several months, reapplying the red clip and clearing it (spraying upside down) just as instructed. I had a couple more spots to spray just now and the thing was completely clogged. I spent 20 minutes trying to get it unclogged so I could use it. Finally, I got it unclogged but when I went to spray it, the nozzle stuck in the on position and continued to spray. Fortunately, I was holding a heavy piece of paper as a guard and I let it spray onto that while I made my way to the garbage in the garage to dispose of it (still spraying). So, I paid about $25 for the can and the knockdown tool and I was able to use just about 5% of the can. And the 5% that I used ended up looking bad. Thanks a lot, Homax. June 22, 2014
