blending CGC Span-texture ceilings after a repair?‏

I have a Span-texture drywall ceiling in our downstairs office that I need to partially remove ceiling drywall strips so I can apply spray foam to the rim joists on the two exterior walls. I then want to re-install the cut pieces/strips, re-mud them and re-apply the Span-texture ceiling so that the patches blend in. Any advice on the best method to use so that the patches/strips blend in so that they are not visible to the eye?

Practice, practice, practice. Use scrap pieces of drywall or cardboard until you think you have the savvy to move to the actual surface.

Sounds like you'll have a good bit to texture so it would be best to use a hopper gun to spray it ..... assuming that's how the original texture was applied. Wouldn't hurt to post a pic of your ceiling's texture.

I believe the contractor I hired years ago did use a hopper to apply the Span-tex. I did post a pic of the texture, last one on my original post.
