Re: I Need Some Tips On Creating A Skip Trowel Texture

We only have stomped ceilings in michigan, and in New Orleans I couldn't find any, just orange peel (and they did everything, even the walls) I like the skipped trowel on the ceiling, just for a change. The stomp has been around for a quarter century now. It was considered new when I started out, and friends who visit from Chicago still think it is "new"
