Applying wall texture

We are ready to apply some type of texture to our newly sheetrocked walls. I've looked on the Internet for pictures of different types of textures and/or tools for applying it, but I haven't found much. Any suggestions? We looked at the mud-dobber, and we're also considering using a hopper and doing a knock-down texture. But I would like to see some other choices before I commit. Thanks for any suggestions!

The choices vary as much as people's taste do. With the hopper you can get anything from a sand painted texture to a heavy orange-peel, depending on tip size, air pressure, and mixture consistency.

You can also apply texture with a sponge, a roller, a brush the possibilities are nearly endless. Do a google search for drywall texture & you'll come up over a thousand websites, start surfin & you'll find something you like.

Good idea to practice on some scrap sheetrock, but you can always try it right on the wall & if it doesn't come out right at first, just scrape the wet texture off with a drywall knife, change some settings & try again until you get what you want. Good luck.
