Can drywall compound or should a special ceiling texture product be used to finish ceiling? Can paint be added to the drywall mix--if so, what consistency should be aimed for? Would ceiling texture be a thick or thin coating? Thanks for infomation.

There are texture compounds, but for splatter and drag, orange peel, crows foot, skip-trowel, etc. I just use regular joint compound thinned (how much depends on the texture and the look you want) Acoustic or popcorn ceilings are a dry mix and paint or water is added then blown on the ceiling. There is also paint additive (sand texture), this must be rolled on. Etc. etc.

I would not add paint to drywall compound, just water to thin and as far as the thickness of the texture depends on the look you are looking for, what is the look you want for your ceiling? Any peticular type of texture?

Chipco is correct. They do make a special paint to be mixed with texture but terrible expensive. don't do it. That is for a pro that shoots it on. If this is your first job, after your done, you will find out really quick why they make pro texturers.
