Step 1

use segmented foam roller on textured ceiling

Prep and Dust the Ceiling

  • Cover everything in the room that will be exposed to possible paint spattering. Wear a dust mask, safety goggles and hair covering.

  • Dust the ceiling, using a feather duster.

  • Use a segmented foam roller when painting a textured ceiling.

Step 2

roll or spray paint stained spot

Paint Over the Popcorn Ceiling

  • Paint in one direction and stop. Don't roll back and forth because once the popcorn gets wet it starts to peel.

  • For stains, roll or spray paint the stained spot, with the same color the ceiling will be painted with, and let dry completly before painting the entire ceiling.

  • If there is a spot that needs a bit more paint, the best solution is to wait for the first coat to dry and then repeat the process.
