Texture Paint


Seems like it comes in both texture you add to your paint and BEHR (YECH) has it combined, quickly picked up on the dislike for BEHR.

Anyone used the stuff you add to paint. I am redoing a small bath that had (2) coats of wallpaper and the second one was terrible to get off as they must of use gorilla glue to put it up. I have fixed up the walls, and also removed ceiling popcorn and stumbled across this product.

As I would rather not figure out, rent, try to texture on my own was thinking the stuff you could put in your paint would be cool, if it works!

Thanks from a weekend DIY'er!

Good luck. I'll be following your post as I have the same problem. Someone just told me about adding a product to the paint for a texture effect.

Be sure to let us know your results.

#1 Painting over dr ywall is a very bad idea, in a bathroom it's a really really bad idea.
#2 Textured anything in a bathroom is a horrible idea. Imposable to clean.

If I'm reading you right, you're wanting "some" texture on your walls, in order to hide imperfections - yet you don't want to rent a texture sprayer.

I think it's probably a good idea to not put down heavy texture in the bathroom.


If this were my project, after getting as much of the wallpaper adhesive off as possible, I'd prime it with GARDZ Primer. After that I'd try to skim-coat any surface imperfections.

I've used Sand Texture in primer, on occasion, and am really not a fan. You've gotta mix it constantly, it's tough to get on evenly, and it doesn't really do all that much for you. You can see surface imperfections through it.

I've also, on rare occasions, mixed some drywall mud into my primer, then used a 3/4" nap roller cover to give it a little texture. That has worked fairly well for me.


In the end, however, nothing is going to produce a better end result than a good smooth surface.

Texture Paint


I'll chime in on not texturing too- although i'm from the part of the country where most walls are flat.
The good DR has a good plan- clean off as much paste as you can- use Gardz- then with a wide mud blade (12" ,6",4" combo will get most anything) use a taping compound like Plus 3 and put up a light coat over the entire surface. Might take 2 apps , 'specially for a noob, let dry
Sand with a hand sander and a light in the other hand ( you'll get why as soon as you try it..)
There are sanders that hook up to a shop vac that really help with the dust BTW- I'll hook you up if interested.
Look over again with the light..
Prime again- could be a pigmented primer this time- lots of good choices
look over again- spot mud/sand/reprime
And finally- 2 coats of a really good paint because you've put this much work into it- don't go cheap now~

good luck~
