Cats Claw Texture


I am in the process of doing a whole house remodel/ room addition and the plans call out for a cats claw texture. Has anyone heard of such thing and if so can you please discribe it for me?

Nope

They should show you a pic or sketch.

Make sure you make samples and have them pick one. And hire a good drywall guy.

Probably just a typo. He meant cat's paw texture. Start pulling nails. Screws are even better!

Re: Cats Claw Texture


Could be one of those texture rollers. They have leaves, vines, seen a bear paw, and all sorts of stomp looks.

You could just add water and reuse it as caulk

Crows foot, cabbage leaf, cats claw.

Guessing here, but I think it could be.......

Where you put some fiber glass insulation into a plastic bag, dip it into some runny mud, and apply to the ceiling. When you snap your wrist back and forth, it sorta looks like a cabbage leaf, give your wrist a twist/bend, sorta looks more like a Crows foot/claw. So maybe the cats claw is a variant/slang.

Re: Cats Claw Texture


I don't really know what the technical term for mine is. My previous boss did it for me when we built our home. I refer to it as "chicken scratch". It has a nice classy look to it. We only did it in the living room and connecting hall.
