I just recently learned that some wall/ceiling textures can be applied with a paint-roller and special texture "paint".
Here are a couple examples from Home Depot:
I was hoping to get more information on this technique. I'd specifically like to know:
- What types of texture patterns are available using this method? Some types look like they could be done by either rolled-on or spray (e.g. Perlite).
- How do the finished results compare to other texturing methods? Is there a noticeable difference in quality?
- Is there a cost benefit for rolled-on textures?
- Is a rolled-on texture easier for beginners to apply?
