A 16" Square Knockdown Texture Field Hand-Applied

This plumbing repair is over living room elegance. A leather couch is directly below.

After overnight setting of deep bonds, and drying of another overall surface coating of flexible grout, work a troweled pattern of texture, inward from edges. Flexible grout is hand-dabbed with a 3" flexible-blade trowel.

I brought a can of spray texture, but trying that would involve hours of masking the room. Here, I work only over drop cloths.

Two hours into this, and I am confident of success. 

Three hours in, with half of that in other patch refinement, I am done.  Good enough? We will see, after painting.
