Default Just a drywaller...

Hi..after reading just a few posts I can already tell I am going to like this site. Looks like a few of you really know your painting and even better yet know how put it in writing so even dumb drywallers like me can learn!!


Like any trade, painting has a lot more to it than meets the eye and I am interested in learning.

The majority of my lifes work experience is in Sheetrocking, taping, texturing. I also have some interior primer and primer/finish (in one) painting experience. Working on both commercial wood and steel jobs, plus residential housing.

Thanks for having a great site...

Welcome.
I love this site also. My advice to you is that if you want to learn about this trade, its better to get some real-life hands on experience actually painting for a legit company,for a definite period of time, rather than trying to learn this trade from reading threads and posts on this site. Good Luck

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Welcome 19Riggs88.

I can see needing a drywall expert around here. Should be a fair exchange of knowledge.

Just don't invite any more! We don't want them all learning how to paint!

Not a good idea. Have you ever seen drywallers that carry multiple sheets of sheetrock while walking up stairs?

Wouldn't want to mess with those dudes.

welcome holmes. Much respect, as I've finished drywall for years now and still can't get the speed down like you guys .

For the record, I used to pour my beer of choice over the lead chips, it was great.

Welcome Riggs,

I'm new in this forum as well and I have a texture question. With the slow work in Indiana I had the time to go to Denver and paint my little bro's new house and yes I charged him. Everything out there has a knock down texture which was sprayed and troweled. He had two bath lights replaced and the back of the fixture is smaller. This shows where the last homeowner painted around the old fixture. I can't sand the edges as I will smooth out the texture. How can I recreate the knock down in these areas an not use a spray to apply. Any help would be great.

Thanks

I have never did a knockdown patch without respraying.

I suppose if the patch is small enough you can hand dab on the mud blobs, wait about 15 min and then lightly trowel. Then when dry lighly sand the very edges.

Or you can hand dab on the mud spots to about the size diameter to match, wait until it is dry and sand them down to match.

Or you can skim over the patch in a larger area. Sand the edges of the skimmed area. Respray the bigger patch to match. Lightly sand the very edges in.

Or you can skim coat the whole ceiling and the respray.

If you don't have a sprayer there is actually knockdown spray in the can that matches nicely if used properly (directions an can)

Hey Riggs, thanks for the tip. Yeah I've seen the spray can but didn't know if it would work very well. These lights are on the wall as well. They knock down everything out there and some with rounded corners. I will give it a try and practice on some scrape drywall.

Thanks again,
