Question

Ceiling pattern -- HELP!


I recently had some holes in my ceiling repaired, and I am trying to match the pattern on my ceiling as closely as possible. Could someone please tell me what exactly is needed to create the pattern in the pictures below and where I would be able to purchase the correct tool for the job?

Thank you!!

Yours is not an uncommon question, but unfortunately it is a difficult one to answer.

No doubt the patterns can be difficult to match but if you only have a few small areas you can try this:

Cut a circle slightly larger than the texture pattern out of a plastic bag like those blue ones you get from the grocery. Next apply a thin coat of drywall mud thinned a bit over the area and apply the plastic circle slightly crinkled like the pattern then pinch the center and pull it off and place it in the next area. The plastic needs to be clean of mud for each impression. You can get something close for minor repairs. Little practice, try one, if it doesnt work smooth the mud and reapply it for a 2nd attempt. Obviously if the patten left behind looks too heavy then the mud was applied too thick. Take some off.
