Can you spray texture with a paint sprayer?
Fortunately, both paint and texture guns are able to utilize the same spray tips. One of the greatest things about an Airless Texture Sprayer is the capability to not only to spray texture materials, but to also spray paint. In fact, with all the performance built into them, they spray paint like it’s nothing.
What psi do you spray texture?
There is no one-size fits all in air pressure for texture guns. You have a regulator on your compressor. Set it for 70 PSI to start, and test the spray. Adjust the pressure down to as low as possible for the material being sprayed and a level that gives a good coating.
How do you unclog a spray can of texture?
You should shake the can hard a full minute before using and then stop to shake briefly every 15 seconds or so. The first shake is intended to move settled material off the bottom of the can and break it up. Not shaking adequately may result in a clogged nozzle, poor spray pattern, or excessively runny texture.
How long does Wall Texture take to dry?
Allow the compound to dry completely – at least 24 hours. Opening windows or using a box fan will assist the drying process. Once the mud is dry, simply prime and paint the textured surface the way you would new drywall.
Can I use joint compound for spray texture?
Regular drywall joint compound, or mud, is generally used to create the knockdown texture. You can use the premixed variety or mix your own. Either way, you must be able to spray the mixture with the hopper gun, so it should be about the consistency of pancake batter or thick paint.
Can you use all purpose mud for texture?
Can you use all purpose mud for texture? All–purpose compound is a pre-mixed mud sold in buckets and boxes. It can be used for all phases of drywall finishing: embedding joint tape and filler and finish coats, as well as for texturing and skim-coating. It is a very easy mud to sand.

I have used hot mud in a texture gun. hot mud sets harder than regular mud. Both mixes will work fine and when you have your orifices set you can get the thickness you desire. Just a note never use warm or hot water only cold.
