paintgun

Not sure if it's the right place to ask this question. I already tried in the paint forum....
I have a fairly cheap paint gun from Harbor Freight. Remember that I've seen
a dry wall guy using a something like a paint gun with a clear hose going to a big bucket with texturing mix and I am positive it wasn't a hoper gun. Anyway how can I make it work with a regular paint gun?
Thanks.

Your question is not clear.
Do you want to hook your gun up to a bucket and spray paint or do you want to spray texture?

He was probably using a mastic gun.

Your paint spray gun cannot be used to apply texture. Texture guns have the material fed to the gun under pressure and pass it through a very coarse nozzle.
Your gun would even likely have a hard time passing latex paint.
