To do a brocade knockdown, you will need the following tools:

-2 hawks (plastic is better, but if metal is what you have or can find, it will work just fine)

-a container to mix up the joint compound, and a bucket trowel or other tool to mix up the plaster

-a knockdown tool, OR a broad taping knife

Then, watch our video below to learn the technique.  This texture is nearly impossible to mess up;  anyone can do it!
