Jud the Painter covers up textured walls with skim coat

Leave a comment

In this video, I show how I use joint compound to smooth out walls that were covered in sand texture on the walls.

Most of the house was covered in this material and I was called in to put a layer of skim over it so the owner can sell his house.

An instructional video I did on how to hold the blade and apply joint compound to the surface being skim coated. Its best to use about a 30 degree angle when pulling off on the surface and going over the material lightly but firm. This is the second coat, so I wanted to be smoother then the first coat.

New York City Office Loft Transformation Skim Coat Paint and Faux Brick Effect

This was a project I contracted to do a few years ago. The client watnted to fix up the place before moving in.

I skimmed the ceiling with joint compound and painted the walls after skimming some of them as well.’

The existing brick walls were painted over with a dull looking paint job. I used decorative paint materials to create a  Faux look of real brick. I used a base coat of red brick color paint and brushed on a lime wash glaze.
