Painting Indoor Ceilings

So here we find ourselves looking at our ceilings thinking how should we fix a problem that re-appears over time. We will be looking at seven different ceiling substrates and how to fix and paint them.

New:  Prime all bishop strips and nail heads with one coat Panache Universal undercoat. On all new ceiling boards apply one coat Artisan plaster primer followed by two coats of Panache Super Acrylic White. If the ceiling is in the kitchen or bathroom, use two top coats of either a Panache Eggshell or Panache Polyglo (Solvent based, or water based).

 

Previously Painted and Sound:  Clean surface with a scouring pad and sugar soap solution. Leave to dry. Apply two coats of Panache Super Acrylic White. If the ceiling is in the kitchen or bathroom, apply one coat Panache Universal undercoat and then use two top coats of either a Panache Eggshell or Panache Polyglo (Solvent based, or water based).

 

Mould:  Scrub ceiling with a scouring pad and mould buster solution. Rinse with clean water and leave to dry. Apply two coats Panache Primercure (Leave 18 hours in between coats). Then use two top coats of either a Panache Eggshell or Panache Polyglo (Solvent based, or water based).

 

Leak Stain:  First find and stop the leak. Leave surface to dry. Once the surface is dry scrub surface with a scouring pad and sugar soap solution. Rinse with clean water and leave to dry. Apply one coat Panache Universal undercoat, followed by two coats of Panache Super Acrylic White. If the ceiling is in the kitchen or bathroom, apply one coat Panache Universal undercoat and then use two top coats of either a Panache Eggshell or Panache Polyglo (Solvent based, or water based).

 

Flaking:  Scrape all loose bits with a 75mm scraper. Sand surface with 120 grit sand paper. Wash surface with a sugar soap solution. Rinse with clean water and leave to dry. Apply one coat Panache Primercure.  Then apply two coats of Panache Super Acrylic White. If the ceiling is in the kitchen or bathroom, apply one coat Panache Universal undercoat and then use two top coats of either a Panache Eggshell or Panache Polyglo (Solvent based, or water based).

 

Red Rust Bleed:  Sand rusting areas with scouring pad and liquid sugar soap solution. Rinse with clean water. Apply two coats Panache Anti-corrosive grey metal primer.  Then apply two coats of Panache Super Acrylic White. If the ceiling is in the kitchen or bathroom, apply one coat Panache Universal undercoat and then use two top coats of either a Panache Eggshell or Panache Polyglo (Solvent based, or water based).

 

Yellowing:  Scrub surface with scouring pad and sugar soap solution. Rinse with clean water and leave to dry. Apply one coat Panache Universal undercoat.
