Help Matching Texture, What Mix to Use


Having trouble matching this texture. I know it won't be perfect if blending, so I'm scraping the whole room down first. I would like it to match the rest of the home as close as I can. Any idea how to get this wider texture? I've tried both compounds with varying paint or water and my pattern is just too tight. See pics. Last one shows you what I'm coming up with.

Thanks!

Two look the same and the other looks like a fairly simple stipple pattern.

The "florette" pattern was most probably done with a special pattern stamp. You could try and make one to match out of carved rigid foam and then use drywall compound and some experimentation.

The last photo is easier. Your paint store should have a stipple roller cover that will leave a very similar texture.

That rosette pattern was most likly done with a special tool that pumps up and down as it's move down the ceiling.
