Ceiling texture... first attempt.


Here's a shot of a piece of scrap I practiced on.

(I made my own texture tool to play with.)

I think I can pull it off.... any comments? Tips?

That is similar to 'broken leather', - very cool look.

Here's the 'tool' I threw together from 1/2" cherry scraps.
I routed the edges round and then sanded and sprayed a clear finish on it to moisture-proof it.

Looks good
I've always liked the random "design" look

Is that Pillsbury or Betty Crocker cake frosting? J/K

It looks great DM! Your ceilings will look beautiful when you're done.

That's a clever texturing tool too.
