Drywall Texturing Tools

This story is a gallery of the tools used for texturing drywall compound.

You'll find a wide range of mechanical and manual tools for applying texture to walls and ceilings. Home centers usually have a variety of brushes in the drywall section, but you can also explore the cleaning supply aisle for more choices.

You'll need a hopper gun to shoot texture onto ceilings. This gun also will spray thinned drywall compound onto walls and ceilings. A commercial-quality airless sprayer also will apply thinned compound, and its gun is lighter and easier to handle. Although ceiling glitter is currently out of style, you can purchase the shiny particles and a manual applicator gun.

Knock down sprayed texture with a wide drywall knife. A broad wipe-down blade -- 24 inches or wider -- scrapes oversprayed texture material from unmasked walls after you shoot the ceiling.
