The spray does not make it flat - just wet-applies a texturing compound which is then troweled out to the desired finish texture - flat, rag dabbed, knock-down, or whtever texture you choose. Hint - I recommend staying away from true flat surfaces except in kitchens where easy cleaning is very important, because the proximity of your eyes to the ceiling, looking along its surface obliquely, make any imperfection stand out - MUCH more aesthetic in general to have a textured surface to at least some extent so imperfections do not stand out.
