Crow’s foot texturing was very popular during the era of our house. It is also called slap brush and panda paws texturing. Although messy, it’s very easy to duplicate on walls. With your room empty and your floors covered with a drop cloth and plastic you’re ready to go.
Fill an empty paint tray with your drywall compound mixture. Dip your roller and allow excess to drip off. Begin applying a layer of drywall to walls. Start in once corner and cover top to bottom before moving to the next row. The compound should be thick so you are able to get a good pattern, but not dripping. Only cover a 4×4 area at a time so the compound doesn’t dry before adding texture.
If you’re trying to duplicate current texture and it appears more natural looking, you can try applying the compound to your wall directly, following a layer of dried compound. Simply brush the prepared compound onto the Crow’s Foot applicator and immediately stomp it to the wall with the brush. Use the same stomping technique I described above. Try both methods on a scrap sheet of drywall to decide which will work best on your walls!
