How would you fix this cosmetic ceiling issue?


I accidentally ruined my ceiling a few days ago with tape.







The photos were taken up close.

As you can see, the paint (or whatever it is) is very thin and peeled away like paper.

Any recommendations? Thanks a lot.

Coat the damaged areas with joint compound as needed. Sand, prime and paint.

Looks like the whatever affected the "paper" part f the sheetrock

It may need a coat of oil-based primer, or Zinsser's Gardz before applying joint compound, to keep the j/k from lifting

Hard to tell from here

Just remember to feather out the joint compound so that is blends in seamlessly.

No one will know that you had that problem before.
