canned orange peel
Decided I hate the 'mars' on the wall where I accidentally scrapped off the slight orange peel texture. (removing wallpaper) The mars are small 1-2 " areas, but many together in several spots.

Bought a can of orange peel spray at SW today. Directions say it's "oil based" and to prime over it. The salesman said, "don't bother priming".

I'm leaning towards believing what's on the can, but like the idea of less work as salesman suggested.

edit: I'm using SW Harmony in this room.

Follow the directions on the can.

Sand these areas and make them bigger. I know doesn't sound right but believe me if you don't they will show. By making the area bigger you can feather out the texture instead of it being in one spot. And it will blend better with the existing.

Just buy a spray can of Kilz and spot prime that area. :thumbsup:
