How to create this texture


Hi,

Just got my drywall patched and would like to put the texture as show in the attachment? Could anyone please tell me what is this texture called and how to create it? Any spray texture will do it?

Thanks a million.

Sonny

that is a spray texture called orange peel. the photo you attached has a either medium or heavy texture. your local paint store should carry this spray texture in water based and oil based. the oil works a little better, but also smells. the can you buy should have a nozzle that can spray the texture thin, medium, or heavy. if you never done the spray texturing before, id try it on a piece of cardboard first.
