I need help finding this ceiling texture


I need to redo a couple ceiling in my house. I realize for best results that I should scrape it all off and start fresh. I do have my whole house with this texture and I want something close. please help me identify it and where to buy it.

I tried the sheetrock medium and it looks too coarse. I also noticed that the color matches spackle very well.

here is a pic

This appears to be texture often called Orange peel. If you are doing a small area there are spray cans that work great. If you are doing a large area then you will need to use a spray gun. Make since?

I thought it was orange peel at first because it is a smaller texture. From what I have seen orange peel is smoother. This is rougher like popcorn with polystyrene beads, but on the medium texture the beads look enormous to comparison. Do they make a rough orange peel texture?

The Orange peel comes in a wide verity from small to large. No two textures are ever going to be the same because of the person, equipment, ect... That was used when it was first put on.

The spray can I referee too has an adjustable tip on it. That will get the job done for you. I get it from home depot

looks like a double stamped 1998 dime, the texture seems to be classified as in circulation, other than the ridged edges I don't think you are gonna get your walls to look anything close to that.:thumb up: I know I am bad

Does look like a very fine orange peel but it may be a roller also. Have a picture of a larger area?

Looks like a very small grain of popcorn, not orange peel. Orange peel looks more splattered than that.

That is a small-curd popcorn texture. You will never duplicate it but if you are redoing everything it doesn't matter.
