Painting Texture Ceiling (Spikes on ceiling)


I am trying to paint my ceiling, is textured with spikes shapes. I would like to know what kind of paint finish you recommend and what should I use to apply the paint. I am thinking about rolling the paint. The color is white and its for the dining room.

The sheen you chose for the ceiling is largely personal preference. Higher sheens will somewhat accentuate the texture, flat will downplay it. Any "ceiling white" will be a dead flat white.


The roller cover is chosen according to the extent of the texture. A stucco like texture would be using a good quality 3/4 or 1 inch knap in order to be able to push the paint down to the bottom of the texture. Do buy a good quality roller. The cheaper rollers rapidly mat down and will not conform to the texture. Good roller covers have a firm feel to them when squeezed.


Hope this helps
