Below you can see the most used drywall textures from most popular and new on top to less popular and old at the
bottom, the skip trowel / hand textures you can order them in light, medium and heavy, light meaning almost flat in
the wall and the heavier the most drywall compound its going to have so its going to be sticking more from the wall,
but the pattern its going to be the same, it can have more or less shapes, the textures are over a wall painted black
so you can see them better, the white represent the texture and the black the shapes left where you see the bare wall.
There are some more pictures of a wall primed and painted in the faux painting section below the textures samples and
some more in the portfolio section.
Small Skip Trowel / Hand Texture, this kind of texture is the most used in new residential construction here in the
mountains, you can order it with a lot of shapes in it or with just a few here and there to give the wall bigger flat spaces,
a lot of new owners change the old texture (orange peel, knock down, popcorn, etc.) from their new condominiums and houses
in order to give it a new feel and as an investment to increase the value of their properties.
Big Skip Trowel / Hand Texture, some times when you want bigger shapes on the texture this is used instead of the small skip trowel / hand texture.
Knock Down texture, this texture is used in residential and commercial contruction.
Orange Peel texture, this texture is mostly used in commercial construction today and was used in residential
construction as well.
Stomp Texture, this kind of texture is mostly used in ceilings and was used in the 70s a lot and a few places
still have it so if your place have it we can repair the walls and match it.
Brushed Texture, this kind of texture is mostly used in ceilings and was used in the 70s a lot, but if you like
it we can use it in your walls or repair them if this is the kind of texture that you have.
Next you can see the most used Faux Painting sponged / ragged using a color for the base and the same
color in a different shade for the faux finish paint. In the left you can see how a piece of wall 2 X 2 ft. look using
one coat of primer and 2 coats of traditional paint and in the right how it look using different colors on top of the
regular color for the faux finish, notice how now you can see the pattern of the skip trowel / hand texture instead of
the flat look that you see painting using 2 coats in the traditional way, as you can see this kind of paint can be done
using any color that you like. Most of the time people use it just like in an accent wall or small space like a bathroom.
Next you can see the same Faux Painting samples in a bigger size so you can see them better.
