HOW TO DO A SPANISH KNIFE TEXTURE   PAGE ! OF 2

 

 What you will need (Tools, Materials)

1 bucket of joint compound (Mud), Drywall pan (optional), Some sort of taping knife

This texture is about the only thing in drywall where a person would not thin the mud down with water.

You can use a drywall pan, or you can dip right out of the bucket (your choice).

I am going to use a 6 inch knife, you can use any size knife you want depending on how busy you want your texture to look.

   

Okay her we go  

Step 1: Sand

Using a sanding pole work your way around the room sanding off any edges, goobers, lines.

I like the new round sander made by

 

Not only does it remove more material faster, It really makes your joints flat.

A regular square sander might make a butt joint smooth but it will leave it humped.

A medium sanding sponge works great for your angles, corners and detail work.

 

 

Step 2: Load up Your mud

You can either dip a few scoops into a pan or you can dip directly out of the bucket. Get a nice glob of mud loaded onto your knife.
