What type of sponge, textured ceiling?

Curious how to get this finish. Tried a coarse sponge and the pattern was too fine. Large fanned-out brush?





One of these?

Probably a crows foot brush. You can get a double or single. Google it. Also the consistency of the mud has a lot to do with the coarseness or fineness of the texture.

Didn't think of consistency. Good point. I'll thin the mud out a little and experiment with a crows foot on a spare piece of sheet rock. Thanks!

I only need to create this texture for a few small patches. Can I achieve the same effect using a wadded up plastic bag?

A brush has a somewhat organized pattern. A wadded up anything is more random. If doing only a small area it might be good enough a match though.

Photo is too close to get a good idea. But that brush would probably work. The consistency of the mud will be the other part to consider... how much water you need to add.
