Has anyone had trouble with those spray on ceiling textures?

I was using the knockdown one by Homax. On both bottles it stopoed spraying halfway through. I was shaking it in between sprays the whole time. Ibeven tried holding it upside down and spraying. There was plenty of air coming out, so it wasn't clogged, but the material would only dribble out. Any ideas?

    No idea sorry! My husband had the same experience. Wish you could hear him tell the story...he had it everywhere! I was not home but would have been a great time for a video! It was a small spot in his bathroom that he thought he would fix around a light....it's still there!

    Those are tricky to use. I think you may have run out of propellant. I only use those for repair areas. You can get larger quantities of texture for whole ceilings or use a finish that can be troweled
