Popcorn ceiling paint


Most ineffective system? That stuff is like water and so easy to spray out of one. Hey if you got the airless rig ready to spray then go ahead and spray it. But for a homeowner im thinking a garden sprayer will be efficient.

I have done about 5 popcorn ceiling jobs with the garden sprayer method. Works fine

And this is from the Data sheets from rustoleum GARDZ.

• Sprayer – GARDZ may be applied using HVLP or airless sprayer systems. Use a .011 to .013 tip and 800 to 1200 psi for airless application. Maintain a distance of at least 18 to 24 inches between the spray tip and the surface. If surface is too
fragile for power sprayer application, GARDZ may be applied with a garden sprayer. For best results, use a sprayer with a
clean 2-gallon plastic tank. Pour GARDZ into the tank and pressurize according to manufacturer’s directions. Adjust the
nozzle setting to dispense the product in a fine, consistent, fan pattern, keeping the sprayer tip at least 12 to 18 inches
from the surface. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for clean up and storage and protect adjacent areas from over-spray

Popcorn ceiling paint


Ok so after taking a closer look at the ceiling. I can see that there is a coat of paint already over the original paint. I took my hand and brushed it across the ceiling to see if anything would come off. Nothing did. Then I went ahead and banged on it a little. Still nothing. From what I been reading I still wouldn't wanna chance painting it. But the wife says different. What she wants. She gets. So I'm gunna attempt it starting tomorrow. Maybe I'll start in her office and if it screws up there she can tell me I was right haha. Thank you all. I'll let u guys know how it turns out. ( Fingers Crossed )

If it's already been painted you shouldn't have any problems.
But I'd like to talk about Gardz I've seen it recommended for about everything but I can't get it here unless I order it nobody carries it. But to be honest if it's so thin you can spray it thru a garden sprayer I'm starting to have second thoughts about it being a good primer. And I thought it was made by Zinzer. And if it is as good as everyone says you would think everyone (big box stores) would carry it, they carry both rustoliem and zinzer products. Not being smart just wondering if it's worth ordering it.

Gardz is very thin- it is made to penetrate. It is ( almost ) unique in how it works and that it makes a seal almost as good a vapor barrier as oil.
I keep finding more ways to use it.
I see it at HD, Menards and all our local paint stores.

I am surprised you can't find it.

Popcorn ceiling paint


I just did my bedroom today. I used an oil base primer I got at H. Depot. In a few days I am going to paint it with a latex ceiling paint. So far so good. The lady at H.Depot said to use the oil base primer and it should work fine. She was right. I read where the oil base will seal it so it can then be painted. It actually looks pretty good right now with just the primer on it but I will coat it with paint. All I did was trim the edges with a brush and then rolled it with a 1" roller.
