Can anynoe give me an idea what is involved in spraying ceiling texture? I think I could do the job, but would like to know if there's more to it that it seems, before I invest in materials and tools. Thank you.

There are 2 ways and I've used the 2nd.

1. If your talking stuco then the best way is to spray it, but you need a compressor and spray gun. You can probably rent the stuff.

2. Buy a pail of stuco and a stuco roller and roll it on.

The spray can be applied more evenly and will look better. I rolled it on the boxed duct work instead of painting. Looked good.
I tried doing patches on the ceiling but it won't match the thickness and the points hanging down.
