Paint

Do I absolutely need to remove the sheen from the walls before texturing over paint?

I'm having a really hard time with the de-glossing process and if I'm not mistaken the sheen is satin on my walls...I just really don't wanna use this stuff anymore.

It's always a good idea to give any top coat a solid surface to properly adhere to.  Using a pivoting sanding head attached to an adjustable paint pole is a fast and efficient way to accomplish this.

 

Wal-Board Tools 3-1/4 in. x 9-1/4 in. Pole Sander Head

Use a high number sandpaper like #120 or #200 to knock down the sheen and prepare the walls for any paint.  This will not cause excessive dust because the particle are too heavy to become airborne.
