Jackie Byrd on Sep 13, 2016You don't want it too wet otherwise you will wet the drywall under the popcorn and it will be easy to damage it. Just try it ! Spray, wait, scrape. It is doesn't slice off, spray some more. If you can figure out how to use a computer and post on this forum, you'll figure out how much to spray quickly. Plus, there are numerous YouTube videos on removing popcorn ceilings that you can watch.
TJ on Sep 18, 2016Our house is about 35 years old (post asbestos). When I decided to remove the popcorn ceiling, I couldn't believe how easy it was. Sprayed small amount of water and used a wide blade. I thought it would take some elbow grease to scrape it off - - nope. My first scrape (with elbow grease), I almost took off some drywall and fell forward. It is very messy - the big home stores have inexpensive paper coveralls with hood and wear protective goggles (my glasses didn't keep it out of my eyes).
