How to spray and match popcorn ceiling texture also known as acoustic ceiling texture:
Move a anything you can out of the area where you’re going to be spraying the popcorn ceiling texture on your ceiling repair.
2) Covering and Protecting:
Cover the floor with at least 2 mil plastic taping it down with 2″ masking tape. Next create a plastic bubble using .31 mil light weight plastic and 2″ masking tape to secure the plastic to the ceiling.
3) Prep for blending the existing popcorn ceiling:
Scrape the area of the ceiling where the old popcorn texture is going to meet the new popcorn texture. Take a 6″ to 12″ drywall taping knife and lightly scrape the existing popcorn gradually feathering it out. This will help blend the to textures with no lines where the ceiling repair is.
After scraping the popcorn I like to prime that area and the entire ceiling repair with Kilz stain blocking primer that comes in a aerosol spray can. This also helps prevent any bleed through from water stains and increases the popcorns adhesion to all of the ceiling surfaces.
5) Spraying and Matching:
Now it’s time for the Fun! Time to spray and match popcorn ceiling texture. Depending on the size of area you’re trying to popcorn. You can use a compressor and hopper. Start out by spraying in a circular motion directing the spray texture at the repaired area first. Then try and blend outward from the new popcorn into the existing popcorn to create a gradual fade into the existing popcorn ceiling that you’re trying to match.
When spraying a whole rooms ceiling:
You’re going to need do a few things before you can start spraying the popcorn texture on your ceiling Clear out the entire area where the popcorn texture is going to be sprayed on the ceiling. This means remove as many things as you can. furniture, tables, electronics, pictures, paintings and personal items ect. Do not put things in the middle of the room if possible. If you have large china cabinets already against a wall, you can leave them because you’ll be draping plastic from the ceiling down to the floor. I recommend covering these pieces of large furniture individually and then letting the wall plastic cover that.
Covering and Protecting:
I like to cover the floor with 2 mil plastic that usually comes in a roll 10’x 200′ and I use a .31 mil light weight plastic that comes in a 12′ x 400′ roll all available at your local big box store or local paint store.
Prime the ceiling:
with a white primer for good adhesion and also so that you don’t have to spray the popcorn texture too thick while trying to hide new drywall or an colored or discolored surface.
Spraying the popcorn ceiling texture:
Start in a corner and start spraying the popcorn along the edges probably about 6′ out on each side of the corner. Once these corners are sprayed, start moving out from there going in a circular motion. You’ll be able to see the popcorn start building up. Try and keep the popcorn consistent by doing the same pattern. as best as possible. Once you have sprayed the popcorn on half the ceiling, take a moment and do a quick inspection of the popcorn you just sprayed. if you see and light or bare spots hit the again using the same circular motion slightly feathering outward from the light area. Now repeat the spraying process on the second half of the ceiling.
Start from the ceiling and remove the tape and plastic letting it fall on the plastic already protecting the floor. Now start from the furthest corner of the room and start rolling back the plastic towards the center of the room. Now continue to roll the plastic and debris right to the main doorway of the room. Place in a large contractor bag and take it out to your trash can.
