Very easy to use, multiple texture options with excellent results
July 22, 2013
We had a plasterer in a while ago and he worked on a ceiling crack next to one of our skylights. Unfortunately he left without refinishing the crack so we decided to try out the Homax spray texture. Very easy to use, simple instructions and excellent results. The nozzle on the can has two separate controls - spray thickness and spray pressure. The latter is quite a clever idea allowing you to adjust the pressure of the spray as the material in the can gets used up - since the can was full, we selected the lowest pressure however as the can empties you can increase the pressure to maintain the flow of material. Before we attempted the repair, I dug out a piece of scrap MDF and put 5 strips down, adjusting the spray thickness between passes. This also helped me get the hang of how to lay down the material properly. Once this had dried I was able to compare the finish on the MDF with the finish on the area we were repairing and settled on a medium setting on the spray nozzle. We threw down a tarp on the floor and then sprayed on the texture, holding the can about 18" from the ceiling. Not too much of the material ended up on the floor but I'd recommend a tarp if you're using this to fix a ceiling. In one area I applied slightly too much texture and was able to flatten this out with a damp kitchen sponge before the texture material was dry. The material is a beige color when wet and took about a couple of hours to dry out completely. Since we had a white ceiling, and the material dries white, you couldn't actually see where we'd made the repair and I have no plans to paint as it is very well hidden already. Clean up was simple - we just held the nozzle under the cold water in the sink and wiped the can dry. Great product and a lot cheaper than a visit from a plasterer!

First can I bought plugged immediately and oozed out leaving a mess. Thinking I did something wrong I drove back to Homedepot and bought another can. Followed instruction exactly. Tested it on a scrap piece of drywall and thought I had it set up. Started spraying my wall and it immediately started plugging and made a mess of the wall sparying heavy globs. I took both cans back and got no argument. I have used the smaller cans 20 oz. and smaller which have a different nozzle and they work well. This can has a separate pressure and flow adjustments. The smaller cans only have flow adjustments. Back to the drawing board on this one.
I just used this to repair a section of wall after moving a light-switch up a few inches. Basically, just followed the directions, no idea what I was doing, but it has worked perfectly.
The hardest thing was breaking off the right tab (at first I was stupidly trying to rip out the whole trigger).
Before this I had to call my drywall guy and pay at least $100 for these sorts of repairs, so this was a massive improvement.

When I got the product home, though I spent a good bit of time shaking it up, there was very little pressure in the can. The previous can I had bought but didn't use immediately had no pressure left after sitting for about 4 weeks, though it had never been used. I would never buy this product again.

The sprayer on this can worked perfectly, no globs. You couldn't see the difference between the "old" wall, and the newly sprayed wall. Once painted there was no telltale markings. One can covered the entire wall space. It dries quickly and I easily painted over it.
Pro Grade provides an easy to use application that creates an orange peel look to your wall. The adjustable trigger provides varies degrees of texture to the application but is sensitive and requires practice prior to actually applying to the wall. It is very easy to overwhelm a wall with the material by spraying too much in the same area. The material dries very quickly and is ready to paint within an hour. A little practice will go a long way in creating a beautiful orange peel finish.
