Place 1 ¼ gallon (4.73 L) of water in a clean 5-gallon bucket. Slowly add texture and mix thoroughly (drill-type mixer recommended). Allow material to soak for 15 minutes. Remix texture before use, adding more water if thinning is desired. Test on scrap drywall to ensure that consistency is adequate for the type of sprayer being used.
Application: Before spraying, mask off floors, windows and doors to protect from overspray. Use spray equipment such as Homax Manual Spray Texture Gun or compressor operated Pneumatic II Texture Gun and 3 Liter Hopper. Most standard hopper-type applicators may be used. Apply to ceiling evening using slow, sweeping motion. Take care not to apply too heavy, or sagging may occur. When application is complete, ensure adequate ventilation by opening doors and windows to promote drying.
Clean Up: Use warm water to clean up any overspray or spills while texture is still wet. Wipe down or rinse equipment with wet cloth after use. Store dry excess material in a tightly closed bag in a dry place.
Light application - up to 250 sq. ft. per box (23 m²)
