How to Texture a Ceiling : How to Fill Inconsistent Areas When Texturing a Ceiling


This is Kevin for Expert Village. Let’s apply
our ceiling texture at room temperature. That is the optimal temperature and it goes on
better that way. You know if you have cracks or weak places in your ceiling, you need to
put some compound in there first to strengthen it up. Let’s let that compound dry and get
strong and then we will go over it with the ceiling texture. There may be recessed places
where you need to put more ceiling texture and it is able to do that but if you get the
ceiling texture too thick on there, it will actually end up cracking in the end to. So
what you want is a medium thickness overall. We use a brush or trial to work the material
into the corners. It will help us to get better coverage there in the corners.

    0:25 spread the compound onto a slice of bread and slap it on the ceiling. No, wait, it's a sponge. What is that woman doing?

    This is very wrong. You don't use your hands or a sponge. I just got done re-doing an old cracked plaster ceiling with lots of repairs and did not EVER do what they're showing here.

    I learned so much from this video! I guess I should apply the texture at room temperature instead of leaving it in the freezer overnight.
