What type of brush for this texture?

You are wanting to define something that can't be defined. No two applications are exactly the same. Texturing ceilings can be done in any number of methods using uncountable techniques and tools.

To find a website that says something about the knowledge of the single individual that created the website and then expecting everyone else to agree is baseless and senseless. Especially in this case.

Any number of methods will recreate the pattern you now have, (but not exactly) you will never pin this down to a single tool or a single product.

The thing to do is to buy the tool you think you want to use, mix up some compound, and make up a sample. See if it suits you, then proceed from there.

Just because Bill sees a rosebud doesn't mean John sees a rosebud. I certainly don't.
Look, I was just explaining what I had found, and by the way, people like you shouldn't even give advice. You have an overall bad attitude!

I know this is a stomp brush because I helped the old man that did my ceiling 40 yrs ago. Now I am looking for the same brush, if you find let me know and I will do the same.

Is this what you're referring to as a stomp brush?

$13.86 each at Home Depot. I know you can get the oval brush, as well as a double oval brush.

I would think that is what some call a stomp brush, Although I would like to call it a ceiling texture brush. the brush in the picture looks like the one you can buy at Home Depot. But you can not do a rosebud pattern with that brush I've tried. that brush is only about 3" wide and is to stiff. I tried water soaking, I tried mudd dipping, I tried all kinds of mud consistency it wouldn't even begin to make the rosebud pattern. the brush I used and seen used is 4"-6" and no matter the mud consistency press on ceiling give a twist with wrist pull down and low and behold a rosebud. wait till dries and take drywall knife and knock off the points and your done.

Well someones on the same page here. I too tried using that brush, let it soak in water overnight to flatten it but didnt get the "rosebud" look. Please, if you find the brush let me know.

What type of brush for this texture?


My house has the same rosebud texture ceiling. The ceiling has to be open up because of the "accident" caused by the plumber. I bought a stomp brush from home depot and another textured brush from Lowes. The textures aren't the same as the rosebud:
http://today-i-care.blogspot.com/201...e-pattern.html

It seems to like the one from Lowes with pre-flattend hairs pointed out. The hairs must be softer so that it creates angled lines rather than the straight lines. Has anyone found the right brush?

Looks like a Star Burst to me.

There's vidios on You Tube showing how it's done.

And Buds right there's hundreds of differant ways to get a textures on drywall, the same tool used used by to differant people can still come out looking differant.
Trying to repair texture on drywall is not easy even for a pro to have it come out matching.

Go to All-Wall.com and on the left of the page click on "texturing tools". Then click on "texture brushes". You want the "Texmaster 11" Shag Stipple Drywall Texture Brush 8803". The ones shown above are similar, but need to be "broken in" prior to use, the Texmaster comes ready-to-use....
