Pitted ceiling from paint.
i had a professional come in a paint. He painted two celings with a spray gun and left theceiling finish very streaked. I painted over one celing but found that when the paint dried, the paint looked pitted. I did spread the paint out and didn't think it was applied to heavily. How can I fix the pitted ceiling? Is there a product that would fill in the pitted areas. I did sand some of the ceiling dow but don't want to do anything else to make a further mess. I usually did my own painting and am very sorry I hired this person especially since he is not responding to my calls..

Is the paint itself pitted, or are you seeing pin holes in the joint compound seams?

Got a picture?

Either way skim coat , prime, and repaint seems like the only answer for pitted.
