Two options...

Spray with an HVLP sprayer...

Large brush..

You can sometimes use a good quality roller but it depends on how exaggerated the stippling is..

SOURCE: How do you stomp texture or stipple a ceiling?

There are a ton of different ways you can get this done. You can purchase what is called a popcorn sprayer that works like an air powered paint gun for ceilings of course you'll need a compressor also. Some hardware stores rent this equipment. You'll be spraying on a material also available at most local hardware stores that is sort of like drywall joint compound only a different consistency.

If you choose to texture by hand you can use a number of tools to get different textures paintbrushes, brooms sponges, precut stencils, rags, etc.. Basically clear out the room cover anything you don't want to get messed up gt a bucket of drywall joint compund your texture tool of choice and a trowel. spread a thin layer of compund on the ceiling and texture away. The thicker you spread it the more texture you will get. Be sure to have a helper that can switch off as this does get tiring, and you'll need extra hands to help get clean water for your tools so your texturing project is consistent. Plan accordingly, this is not a project you want to leave halfway through and finish another day. If you start a room, finish it. or you will notice the difference in texture every time you sit down and try to relax.

How do I calculate the amount of paint needed for walls in a 12 foot by 16 foot room with 8 foot ceilings?


Ceiling paint estimator

Use the following formula to estimate the amount of ceiling paint you need. Double the result if the ceiling requires two coats.
1. Multiply the length of the ceiling times its width to find its area.
14 × 20 = 280 square feet
2. Divide that number by 350 (the estimated square feet covered per gallon) to figure out how many gallons of paint you need.
280 ÷ 350 = .8
For this example, you want to buy 1 gallon of ceiling paint for a single coat.

Wall paint estimator

Use the following formula to estimate the amount of wall paint you need. Double the result if the walls require two coats.

How do you avoid getting paint on the ceilings when painting your walls?


Yeah that is some concern there. You use painters' tape that is used for painted surfaces. You must specify what you need so that you will not buy the wrong item. There are tapes that are designed just for painted surfaces. This type of tape will not peel off the paint on your ceiling when you remove it unlike the ordinary masking tape. You can purchase this tape at our local stores near you or you can order it online. We also have other products such as preparation products, preparation equipment, finishing and cleaning and application accessories to make your work easier and quicker. Purchase all these paint accessories at the right store and with the best price.

How can i prevent my bathroom ceiling paint from peeling off


One of the main reasons for the breakdown of paints in bathrooms, is of course moisture. Do you have a fan/ventilation system, (not just a recycling air filter,) that can be turned on when you bathe or shower? This would help. Also, a better type of finish would be an eggshell or satin finish type paint. The moisture cannot gather to the same extent on this type of finish.

How do I make a "space" in between the lettering. How do I enlarge to do stippling.


with the lettering mode, there should be a code number you program in for each letter, number and for a space as well.

Stippling is usually done by free motion stitching with a special foot so its not actually a stitch pattern, just a straight stitch that you form into the stippled pattern by moving the item as it is stitched.

Hello, I am trying to find the right tool to match a stippled ceiling that had to be repairs, I have a few large areas to do. The patten looks like a flower to me. I see theres someone or here that sounds...


This is a tool that you can get at a paint store or maybe home depot or lowes. It is a texture brush that is "slapped" on the wet texture to create the pattern. It is usually a tool with two side by side brushes whose bristles are shaped in the form of an oval. Just slap the brush on the wet texture and turn it randomly to make the random patterns. I believe it is called a "crowfoot" texture brush in the trade.

I painted my ceiling and it started bubbling all ova i scraped this and now no paint on it iv tried to paint it now and its patchy i ccan describe it as looking greasy patches what shall i do


The weather must be fine its not cold or rainy when painting something. If your painting your ceiling and the weather is not fine try to open your heater to normalize the room temperature and allow the paint to dry as fast as possible.
