    Howdy all, got a question I hope someone here can answer. I'm painting a faux monument style sign, and I want to add some texture to it. Now I've noticed there are other signs in my area, where the sign maker put a "popcorn" type texture on the poles, base, etc. Problem is, I can't figure out what it is?

    I've tried knockdown spray texture in a can, and that melted off in the first rain. So did a "textured" style spraypaint.

    Oh, and because I know someone will ask, I can't find out from the other sign maker, because the are out of business. :p

    Anyhow, any help or advice is welcome. I'm at my wits end, I've checked with Benjamin Moore, and Sherwin Williams, and they came up empty.

    Thanks!

    I think you may want a "drivet" type finish. It's a masonry product.

    Did you prime it and paint over it with an exterior latex acrylic paint? If so, I can't imagine it would wash off. If not, I think that was the issue.
