Home was built in Houston metro area in 1987. I replaced drywall in ceiling and haven't seen any examples of this specific ceiling texture. Other homes in the neighborhood also have it. I need to replicate this for an 8'x6' repair so I'm asking the pros if anyone knows how this was achieved. It looks like a 9" brush with cut-outs was used with joint compound and then applied in multiple triangular patterns. Is there a specific name for this texture pattern and more importantly, what was used to create it?
That looks like a "bagged" finish.
just applied in a pattern instead of over the whole surface.
