Replicating pattern on small repair? photos

Please, does anyone know how I could duplicate this pattern on a 1'x1' repair?
Any help will be much appreciated.

When the repair is done, trowel on some joint compound and try a thick brush like a wall paper brush, and try to brush the compound in an arc, this should get you close.

I would try the previous suggestion on some card board first and definitely thin the joint compound down with water and mix it well. Don't thin it so much that it will drip off the ceiling.

Practice makes perfect

Thanks

Thanks for the advice, are you guys sure this is done with a brush? Each swirl looks identical like it was done with a blade?

What kind of blade are you thinking it is done with.

The pattern produced is unique to the individual tool that was used. I doubt you will reproduce it exactly. The best you can hope for imo is to make it unnoticable.

There are tools with metal blades that are used for texturing . The one on the bottom of this page looks like the ticket. It is vwry much like the wallpaper brush mentioned above.
