Re: Sand finish drywall ceiling repair
If there is a noticeable sand texture, then it was probably sand added to the paint, not the drywall. If you've got a texture pattern with sand granules in it, then you probably have what's known as skip trowel texture. Either way, you'll remove any loose tape, retape the joint as you normally would and feather out the edges of the patch as best you can during application. When you're done, sand and feather the edges so that there is no sharp demarcation line between the patch area and the rest of the ceiling. From there it's a matter of matching the existing texture as close as possible. Without being certain of what you're dealing with, I cannot offer advice on applying the texture. Can you post a picture?
