Wall Texture

    That very distinctive line between the top 1/2 and bottom 1/2 of the picture make it look like someone already did a patch here. They did a reasonably good job of duplicating the pattern, but it just feels like there is a hard line between the two spots. I had to click to ensure that it wasn't two pics back-to-back.

That's most likely a stiff brush applied to the wet compound. Go to the dollar store and get a cheap plastic whisk broom. Practice your strokes on a piece of scrap with a scratch coat applied.

I've done this texture before and you can use several options n swirl it into the walls..putty knife..can use a sponge, a rag but l find putty knife is smoother. Once you apply it you use the swirling motion..let it dry n prime and paint..love this texture!
