Major Types Of Wall Texture Painting Patterns And Techniques

Artistic painting on the walls of the house has been practiced since ancient times. Just with the passage of time, there has been a change in the human imagination to give a beautiful look to the walls of the house, which we know today as wall texture painting. Today, to give an artistic look to any one wall of the room, it is decorated with different types of painting while plastering or painting it with color.

After this, the work of enhancing the beauty of the room is done by applying light lamps, pictures, wall-hanging, etc. on the textured wall. By using texture on the walls, the beauty of the room remains for years. Usually, 8 types of Walls can be given an artistic look by using textures. In this article, I am sharing with you information related to different categories of textures.
Let's see how different categories of wall texturing can enhance the look of your home.

Popcorn Wall Texture

This type of texture has been popular for 50 years for decorating the ceiling or walls of houses. The only difference is that at that time this texture was made in white color, but now popcorn texture can be made in different colors.

Premixed popcorn mixture is used to create popcorn textures on the wall with the help of Hoppergun, air compressor equipment. A thick layer of mixing material is used to sprinkle on the surface of the wall to shape the texture.

This type of texture allows hiding the dampness of the walls. Apart from this, using this texture on the walls of the room helps in reducing the noise and hiding the imperfections of the walls.

Therefore, it is a good option to use popcorn texture on walls that are often damaged by dampness. Apart from this, popcorn wall texture is also helpful in reducing the effect of the sound of TV or music systems.
Due to this quality,this texture proves to be the right choice for the living room.

Skip Trowel Texture

The texture is used on the main wall of the room, which adds uniqueness to the decor of the room. Using a skip trowel texture on the wall of the kitchen, the feeling of cooking in an ancient kitchen can be experienced from the walls. In order to enjoy cooking in the kitchen, the skip textured wall can be left without using any color or it can be painted with a yellow ocher color.

The skip trowel technique involves spreading an extra thin layer of drywall soil over the surface using a trowel tool. The design is then created in an irregular pictorial style by sculpting the drywall clay layer with the help of another clean trowel. Since the design is engraved by skipping the trowel tool over the drywall clay layer in an irregular direction, Hence this style of wall texture is known as the skip trowel technique.
To make the skipping trowel texture on walls, plaster material is prepared by mixing sand and joint compound powder with water.

Knockdown Texture

This textured style refers to random design application on the wall surface and then excess drywall soil is knocked down by running a drywall knife over the texture.

Special knockdown texture tools are available in the market that can be used to apply the texture to walls like a texture specialist. Although there is no specific design standard for this texture, any drywall knife can be used to carve a wall.

This textured look is imparted by spraying, troweling, or rolling drywall joint compound over the walls to engrave the knockdown texture. A knockdown knife is then used to flatten the engraved image. The result is a speckled, natural textured look effect on the walls, which is effective in hiding the imperfections of the primary walls.

After the texture work is completed, the wall is left to dry thoroughly for at least a day, then a primer coating is done after that again flattering the surface is required for smooth finishing of design. You can now start painting the textured surface.

Comb Wall Texture

Comb wall texture is mostly preferred by people interested in artistic painting in their homes. This texture can be created by following different lines and lengths drawn by comb or comb trowel tool.
It is simple and easy to create by an artistic person. That's the reason people prefer customized comb wall texture in their home walls.

The popular pattern of comb textures is the rainbow shape, which is created with the help of a comb-like trowel tool. It is best to use a small toothed trowel tool to engrave the texture on the wall.
A comb trowel is used to carve lines of different lengths on the wall repeating at different angles on the drywall soil.

A coat of primer is first applied to the surface of the wall and leaves the surface for drying.
Then after using a fork or trowel, a set of small teeth can be used to create multi-angled lines on the wall for carving rainbow patterns.
Additionally, using a small-toothed trowel tool to create a uniform circular pattern on the surface of the drywall is also preferred, but this type of pattern is a bit difficult to create and requires a skilled craftsman.

Orange Peel Texture

As the name suggests, the texture of this texture looks like a real orange peel-like surface raised on the wall. Shaping this texture requires expertise. The texture carving process includes Priming the wall; after the primer dries, the drywall material is sprayed onto the surface of the wall to form an orange peel-like bulging pattern.
Spraying the drywall material onto the wall requires a hopper gun and compressor equipment. The appropriate power of the compressor is essential to shape the orange peel texture on walls and ceilings.

Additionally, the fluidity of the mixture helps in creating a uniform shape of orange peel texture on the wall surface. drywall mixture consistency should be as thin as a pancake solution. This helps shape the appropriate pattern on the drywall surface.

Painting on the wall should be started only after the texture is left for the prescribed time to dry as per the instructions on the drywall package.
Orange peel texture can be used to enhance the beauty of the main wall of a dining room or kitchen.

Sand Swirl Texture

Sand swirl texture is widely preferred for decorating the wall. This texture is not suitable to do -it -yourself as it requires two people to carve this pattern on the wall. So it is better to get this texture done by an expert painter.

One person applies a porous primer mixed with sand to the walls, while the other continues to process the arching design, creating a circular, wavy swirl-shaped set of hands or fingers on the wall. The process of making texture is completed as soon as the coating of the primer applied on the walls remains wet. However, if you are an expert in the art of painting, you can also use a comb/brush/hand to draw free-hand patterns or geometric lines.

Due to the high amount of sand being used to create this texture, it should be painted only after it has dried thoroughly, otherwise, the sand particles will start scattering with the painting brush.
Sand swirl texture is suitable for painting the walls of the living room, and children's bedroom of the house.

Slap Brush Texture

In slap brush texture, thin irregular lines on the surface of the walls are used to create the desired shape. This type of texture can be created even without a spray gun tool. This technique requires a roller, a double crowfoot drywall texture brush, and a Drywall compound.

To make a shape on the walls with the slap brush technique, first, divide the wall into five square parts. After this, prepare a thick mixture by dissolving the drywall compound in water. Then with the help of a roller tool, spread the mixture on the divided part of the wall. Then use the Double Crow Foot Drywall Texture Brush to paint your desired shape on the wall.

Designs like rosebud pattern, crow's feet pattern, stamp brush pattern are usually engraved on the wall using slap brush texture technique.
As the name suggests these textures are used to carve by name like pattern slap brush. on the basis of which the wall texture name has been classified.

A circular stamp brush is dipped into the drywall mixture to engrave the crow's foot on the surface of the wall, then stamp the mudded surface using a slap brush one after another to create the texture.

The storm brush method is an ancient style. It consists of dipping a large brush into a container of drywall clay, then immediately after carving the drywall clay on the surface of the wall, dragging the tool back into the texture of the ridges to form a mountain-like pattern.

The Rosebud pattern is a design created within the slap brush texture. The rosebud-like shape is carved by dipping the brush into the drywall mixture.

Slap Brush Knockdown Texture

This type of texture is shaped by using the slap brush technique to flatten and wider lines of the surface. Creating this texture requires a roller, slap brush, knockdown knife, and drywall compound.
After drawing the shape on the wall with the help of a slap brush, leave it for 5-10 minutes to dry slightly, then with the help of a knockdown knife, the pattern is carved by knocking down the excess ridge layer on top of the design.

The knockdown texture is also known as the splatter texture. Most builders use it on the walls in flats because of the attractive appearance of this texture. The wall decorated with this texture can be left without panting.
If there are cracks in the knockdown texture, then after applying a thick layer of drywall compound over this texture, a new texture can be made in an irregular pattern with the help of a trowel tool.
