Fran, what you need is less high hiding paint and more flat paint. Don't know where you live or what's available to you. I like Ben Moore Super Spec flat, BM Muresco, or BM's new waterborne ceiling flat, MAB Fresh Kote Flat, Finnaren & Haley Carefree Flat. Specify to your dealer that you need dead flat. Not all flat wall paints are good for ceilings. You want the least sheen possible, dead flat. Get a good quality 1/2 cover or lambswool, apply the paint generously and uniformly. Roll one half of the ceiling two roller widths, then do the other half two widths, overlapping side to side and back into the previous rolled area. Go back and forth in this fashion across the whole ceiling. Back and forth.

BM waterborne ceiling paint. Probably the best on the market at this time. If its a large ceiling, and you are having trouble moving fast enough to maintain a wet edge, you can always use an oil flat.

Great advice on the Benny Moore products. Since I have an SW paint store nearby, I use a lot of their Classic 99 Ceiling white (flat). I think they changed the name recently to "Brilliance." Anyway, it's a great product for textured ceilings as it soaks up evenly into the texture & usually takes only one coat. It covers very well.

NCPaint, where have you last seen a flat oil? I would love for flat oil to still be available, and an eggshell. I think it has to do with the regulation in my area that restricts availability. Maybe it would be better, imho, if Fran added some Floetrol and moved fast to increase wet edge time rather than tackling an oil ceiling.

BM 306 Calcimine Recoater ...aka oil flat. floetrol is fine, but people tend to overuse it and cause more problems. Flat oil isn't a big deal really, just use throw away stuff and skip cleanup.

**and I last saw flat oil in my store this morning.

I just used Kelly Moore 550 flat white on my ceilings. It did a great job.

Not me. I asked my question and got a typical answer. I will not respond further to someone that calls childlike names in manner that can't be addressed in person.

Hmmmm...

Nobody's mentioned C2's Ceiling-paint (L8150) yet!

Looks perfect on our ceiling. I'm VERY pleased with it....and I'm d*mn fussy.

We also go thru lots of the ACE-Royal Ceiling-paint too.

I have probably used more of this paint than I ever will of any other kind of paint as long as I live. The stuff kicks butt and is priced in the low 20's a gallon.
