Can anyone help match textures


Trying to match texture after major wall repair. Can't seem to find the right technique. Any advice? Does anyone know of a web site where there are pictures of all textures with 'how to' info attached?

Might be able to match that with a roller and 3/4" nap and some thinned down joint compound.(not thinned out to much at all).

THANK YOU! Would that be a regular roller you'd use for paint?

Yes. just make sure it is a 3/4" nap. Get a paint grid for a 5 gallon bucket and put about a 1/3 of a bucket of joint compound with about a 1/4 cup of water. Then mix. You will have to fine tune your technique and possibly your texture mix. Let us know how it works out for you or if you have any other questions. Good Luck!!

Very close match. Played with it for about 15 min and got it very close. I will do some knockdown when it is dry to simulate 50 years of paint and then apply a very heavy coat.
