I am patching up a wall and would like to know how much pressure to set my compressor at for an orange peel finish to match the existing one. I have a Spraying Mantis hopper type gun and a 20 gallon Campbell Hausfeld compressor. Also should I use the smalles gun tip? Thanks
There is no standard rules here, it is a matter of trial and error to match any texture. Generally, the finer the size of the texture and the flatter it lays on the wall, the smaller the orifice size used and the higher the pressure. The thickness of the mixture adds another variable.
