Textured ceiling repair

trancefusionFebruary 14, 2011

Can someone tell me what this textured ceiling is called, or (better yet) how to reproduce it after replacing a portion of drywall?

It looks kind of like my friends cieling, they called it stipling(not sure on spelling), and they did it with a big like 6 inch round brush and just kinda dab it on. Any texture is hard to match even if you did the original work. Blending edges is usually difficult, but yours looks kind of random so it may be easier. Just practice on something else first

Looks like it's spelled "stipple" and you can buy brushes to do it. I'll be able to google for tips now at least :)

Thanks again.
