Roller nap size for this texture?
Mike

Hello,

Can anyone take a guess at what roller nap size could have been used to get this paint texture?

I am wanting to repaint over patches I made and sanded smooth.

Thanks

That is plaster that was shot on the surface using a sprayer.

After that, it kind of looks like a paint sprayer was used to paint the surface. I used a paint sprayer to paint the plaster walls in our house. I used an oil based paint, and it turned out extremely smooth and shiny.

Thanks for the reply!
I don't have a sprayer so I'll try with joint compound over a roller and see how that texture looks.
