Paint roller for textured ceiling?


I have done a heavy texture on the ceiling of my basement and would like to know which roller I would need in order to prime it and then paint it.

I have seen a foam roller that has slits in it. Would this work?
The texture I did was my version of a spanish knife texture. Somewhat heavier than a regular spanish knife.


Thanks

The slitted nap is for painting a popcorn ceiling. A 3/4" nap would be your best bet for painting a heavy texture.

Not the foam roller
A good quality 1/2 will usually go over a regular Spanish Knife, but then I prefer a 1/2 over smooth, so I'd go for a 3/4 over a heavy SK texture

Get a quality one...well worth it

Might add keep the floor and furnishings protected until you know nothing is going to drip or fall from the ceiling.

Did a small mudroom ceiling once. Thought it was a quick, small job so just drag a plastic drop around to catch the splatter on a popcorn ceiling since I was using a 3/4" sleeve. It was just a few drops that had dripped and a little popcorn material that dropped after I moved the plastic. This was a painted concrete floor. Then the lady ho got a little fussy and got to walking all over it making it look twice as bad while giving me down the road. " I used to paint...I can't believe you did not cover everything.." It was very humbling experience. She didn't even want me to finish the cuting in. I made a mistake but enough was enough!
$200 to her and a sincere apology and I was out of there before it got really ugly.

Thanks for the tip boman, but the flooring is not in yet, so I have not been covering it, so now I have to go around and pick off all the compound that has fallen.
