glossy textured interior walls


who the heck cares if texture is a regional thing... you can do what the drones do and have your home like "everyone else" in the region, or you can be unique and do something different. Its ok to put any type of texture on a painted service, you just have to be careful as texture is water based and it will take alot longer to absorb into the walls before painting. Are you planning on contracting a professional texture company or diy? I do this for a living and own all types of texture machines from hoppers to trailer mounted spray rigs. if you need help, just ask.

Just rewash the walls with the TSP and rinse. You don't need two separate washings.

**** Thanks Stoner, house will be done in Art Deco style, old Hollywood. Will use a latex testure and some walls will be imported wall paper. Previously used a product, ATI rough stuff, appears it's discontinued. Drying is not a problem, I work really slow! Can you recommend a good texture product that will work over the oil base primer (Zissner).

depends on if you want to spray the texture on. what tools are you using? you can get texture cheaper at supply yards depending on where you are from

Stoner, can you recomend a texture? Previously used ATI product waterbased 'rough stuff'. Apparently company is out of biz. Will use trowel. Walls are now primed with Kilz oil priner and I'm glad to have the recommendation of the oil, it covered well. Susan

You are talking about texture and trowels. Have you thought about Venetian Plaster or other similar products that are trowled on and can be painted after or the substance can be colored prior to application and blended.

Two good suppliers of these products are Faux Like a Pro and Aqua Effects. I do a ton of trowled on finishes and they are WONDERFUL!!!

If you care to look at my picture sharing site/ www.picturetrail.com/mickey51

you can see some of those products in action.

What texture are you looking for??

Will use a textured roller, the blue texture cover. Can you advise a good economical water based texture? Will be doing the entire house. 5 Gal qty would work best. Previously used ATI waterbased Rough Stuff, appears to be discontinued. Mickey, I was unable to open your pitcure link. Susan

Took some pics of a Venetian Plaster sample board as and FYI to show what can be done with a wall that has a bad texture and make it a show case IMHO
