You may have to mix that topping mud and paint with a shovel. no not really .If your going to use a hopper gun then you can if a texture is what you want.But you still have to roll\spray a paint color over the walls or top.I have sprayed the color on every thing first like a lite green and then use a hopper gun to spray texture over top of finished walls with a dark green concrete stain mixed with texture mud.I did this in a rental i had to test sonething different. It really looked good,just something different to look a besides plain one color walls. good luck,with a little cost you can try about anything. Ken

We all no alot but can only do a little---------an
