What do you mean by stomping? Slapping? As in slap brush

As a general, why in the ph*ck would you want to texture it?

Okay, maybe that's your taste.

As a general...

(still a little skeptical about that title)

Hang a new 1/4" lid and stomp away, Mr. DIY.

If you want to know how to start over on the existing surface (without 1/4" board), I will tell you.

But it will be more labor intensive than hanging a new lid.

Yep. Skim then texture. Everything is textured here.
Not much stomp though.
Mostly knockdown, skip trowel or orange peel.

Re: Stomping A Ceiling


Unfortunately in St. Lucie and Martin County ''Stomp'' was popular in the 80's. I've actually got ''somewhat'' good at patching/matching it. And found that sanded down 50-75% with my Porter Cable it makes a nice knock down looking texture.

What about rolling a coat of Cover Stain? Dries flat. Bonds. ?

Re: Stomping A Ceiling


I agree with blacktop. Primer should stick. I think the mud would stick just fine to the semi gloss, but priming it is cheap easy insurance.

Re: Stomping A Ceiling


I agree. Priming is the way to go. If it was a new ceiling, I imagine that you would mud it, finish it and prime it prior to stomping it anyway.

Re: Stomping A Ceiling


As others have said... just prime it with a good primer (personally I would use Zinsser Cover Stain - I LOVE that stuff).. let it dry and go to town on it... You can sand over the semigloss if ya want to but to me that is just a waste of time.. and time is money *shrugs* I have done a LOT of ceilings that way and never had a problem.

"Oil killz" I find works the best to paint over any glossy surface. Let us know how it works out.
