Since World War II, drywall (also known as wallboard or gypsum board) is the material most commonly used for interior walls. Drywall is a common manufactured building material used globally for the finish construction of interior walls and ceilings. Another technique has you cutting the hole to a rectangle and then making a blowout patch from a piece of same-thickness drywall.
Next, fill the hole with drywall compound or painter’s putty using a putty knife to smooth it out, and make it level with the wall surface. Instead, drive a second nail—or better yet, drive a drywall screw—in near each popped nail to re-anchor the drywall at that spot and then tap the original nail back in place.
Smoothing out the edges of the drywall compound flush with the surface of the wall is called feathering. This company offers all types of wallpaper removal, residential and commercial painting, power washing, drywall repair, deck staining, and more. You can often duplicate a knock-down pattern by spraying texture from a can and flattening it with your drywall knife when it stiffens.
