Yes - there is a small, detail sponge tucked into the core of the roller. Thanks,

Can you get the sponge faux finish by using satin enamel paint?

Asked by MK November 10, 2020
1
Answer

Yes - any good quality wall paint can be used to get the sponge faux effect, although working with a glaze can help achieve even better results. The most important application technique to remember is to not overload the roller with paint. Loading with too much paint will prevent the sponge texture from showing through on the wall, and simply look like a "messy" paint job. Having a piece of scrap material handy can be helpful, as you can roll your loaded sponge roller on the scrap to remove excess paint before rolling on your wall. It is best to go lightly, especially at first, as you can always add more paint to the wall later. Thanks,

Is there a roller that has an Orange peel texture on it?

Asked by TC July 21, 2020
1
Answer

There is not a specific roller cover that is designed for orange peel but there are two options you could try, depending on your paint and the surface you're painting. Assuming its a relatively smooth surface (like drywall), you can move up to a longer napped roller cover like a 1/2in or even 3/4in nap. Too long of a nap will cause your roller cover to skid and slide rather than roll, but the longer nap will give more of a stipple pattern in the paint. Another option is to use an open-cell foam roller cover (usually yellow in color), that can also give a type of orange peel stipple pattern. Thanks,

Can this be used for (thinned) drywall joint compound please? Thanks.

I used it on a bucket of standard drywall compound and it made a great sandy look texture. You could apply in one stroke and then knock it down.

Will this cover produce the "orange peel" - like effect?

Yes

I am trying to match a rolled on texture having problems finding the right nap. Its going on a smooth surface.

Asked by Char April 9, 2017

Answer

Based on the statement, I am not sure of your exact situation. If you have light texture already on the wall, a 1/2in nap roller will most likely be your best choice. If you are trying to get a texture effect on a currently smooth wall, a roller cover alone will not provide that. Your first step is to choose a paint specifically designed for texture or texture effects. These paints are much heavier bodied and can either be roller or troweled onto a surface to create the desired look. Hope this helps. Thanks,

I used this product to apply Ralph Lauren metallic paint. After watching some RL videos on how to apply the paint, it recommended a sponge roller and luckily my local HD had one in stock for $9. The directions for the RL paint was to apply a first coat with a 3/8 roller and then apply a second coat with a sponge roller. This worked great. Be warned, this thing will throw paint everywhere, so have stuff covered. As an added bonus, this came with a small piece of sponge (was hidden inside the roller) to use when cutting the edges. Saved me $10 from having to buy small sponge pieces from the store.

I asked if it could be used with metallic paint the employeesaid yes/I tried it and I received more paint on myself. It probably works better with thicker paint. I wouldn't disapprove of it completely, until I try it with thicker paint.
