Please advise. Would like to stipple a ceiling.

I currently have (textured) stippled ceilings in my Livingroom and diningroom.
I would like to put it onto a hall ceiling. I think this has been sprayed on, as it is very even and consistant throughout. In the past I once painted on a stippled ceiling, but it was much rougher and not as nice looking.
What I am wondering is: Can I do this myself? What equipment do I need, eg. compressor? Can anyone direct me to instructions about this?
Thank you.

Spraying texture requires a hopper gun powered by an air compressor. You can probably rent both.

Although it is fairly easy to do, it is messy - the texture likes to go everywhere. As you know to have an even consistent texture requires it to be applied even and consitently.
