So it's has been less than 24 hrs since completion and all is going well so far. I'll do a thorough review next week once it has time to set but so far no complaints. I put some pics below with the black-out shades drawn and lights off for reference, also from a few angles.
Texture looks great so far, being that I was a newbie at this, and I'm a bit particular about how I do things I used the following process:
1) Skim coated wall with lightweight drywall compound, thinned and rolled on with a 3/4" nap roller, then used a 12" taping knife to remove.
2) Light sanding if the dried compound with 220 grit.
3) Thinned out some 123 Bullseye with 3oz water per quart and sprayed 3 coats, sanded, spray an additional coat, sanded
4) Mixed SF v2.5 5.5 mix and loaded into HV2900 sprayer. Applied 4 duster coats in a cross hatch pattern (coat 1 horizontal, coat 2 vertical, 3 horizontal, 4 vertical). Let stand 30 minutes between coats with oscillating fan running on the wall.
5) Applied 4 main coats in the same cross-hatch pattern. Let stand 1 hr in between coats with oscillating fan on wall.
Straight on paint looks great, you can see the slightest of texture with a light shining at EXTREME angles (flashlight almost parallel with the wall) In the first hour last coat was a bit tacky and still had some shine which let to some hotspots. As it dried those disappears, haven't notice and issue with picture as of yet. Viewing angle isn't even an issue (as you can see from the pics below). I'll update this thread with some pictures of the final texture, night pics, pics with the Darbee and 1 week update as I progress.
