There are three categories of drywall texturing; light, medium and heavy. These categories are based on the size of the texturing in the mix with light having the smallest pieces and heavy the largest. Each of these categories is further divided into a set of simple or complex drywall texture methods. A simple method includes only one application step while complex methods require more. Each of the individual methods requires a basic set of drywall tools. These tools include should include at least two 5 gallon buckets, a drill with a fan mixing blade, a large mudding knife, a trowel and drop cloths. Some of the more advanced complex textures use a drywall comb or pressing block. There are also optional texture sprayers with hoppers and nozzles for different texture compounds.

Locate the wall studs before you begin cutting, drilling or nailing drywall. It is a good idea at this time to wash the glue from the wall, and prime, or paint the wall with Gardz before applying your new finish. Place the filler piece of drywall inside the hole. It should fit perfectly, leaving a few inches of overlapping paper on all sides.
