Texture after repair
I can do a very nice job installing/repairing drywall. Where I need help is matching any texture beyond what can be applied with a hopper. Does anyone have any tips or links? Educate me, please.

Hello, All depends on what style texture you have. You can find a lot of different kinds at your local building center, Lowe's, Depot etc. Some are in a spray can. I have done several patch jobs and with your basic "orange peel" you can buy a can of it to spray patch areas. Check out the local stores. There are so many different things out there today where you don't need a hopper for small touch up work.;)

Hello SJN, did you have any success in your drywall repair, there are many & various tools that can be used, even by using other household objects to re-create various patch up designs
