We have orange peel finish on the walls. I bought a can of orange
peel spray on at Home Depot. Is there a special way to apply this? I
did take it outside and practiced on cardboard and it looked o.k.
Then I sprayed a spot on my wall where I had filled a fairly large
hole with spacklin compound and smoothed it off. It looked more like
popcorn finish. I even tried holding it under the hot water faucett
per instructions but that didn't do much better. Would appreciate any
advice on using it. By the way, it is oil based. Will I need to seal
it with something before applying latex paint?
I use this stuff on small patch work. Not sure the product name or I just
can't remember. Anyway if you don't like the results it should just wipe
off with water soaked rag or sponge. It's the primer/sealer that makes it
perminate. Make sure you shake the can for some time, longer than you think
necessary. Practice is a good idea. It should have an adjustable nozzle.
You don't need to use much. Most peoples problem is that they use to much
and it looks like popcorn or it starts to run. You don't need as much as
you think. These products have always worked great for my repairs and it
keeps me from having to bring out the air compressor and hopper equipment
for such a small job. Hopefully you got the right product and not the
"You can lead them to LINUX
but you can\'t make them THINK"
