hi all,

I painted my ceiling yesterday. during the painting I noticed some "knobbly" bits when I was applying it.

I didn't want to stop as I had a good consistency going. I left these bits to dry and thought i'd just flick it off.

today I was flicking them off. it seems like its hardened small balls of paint. anyway as I flicked them off it left paint chips over the ceiling.

painting will not fill in the chips.

what are my options to remedy this?

should i use all purpose filler to fill in the chips?

ive attached some photos. you are all probably out in the sun so not expecting quick replies! as a matter of fact I'm not gonna bother with the ceiling, I'm going out there myself!

thanks in advance

Is the paint peeling away?

From what I can see I would touch in the parts of bare plaster you can see with a bit of contract Matt or watered down paint.
Sand, fill. Sand and fill and sand again then paint it over again.

If you’ve got bits in your paint then give it a good stir up and strain through a pair of tights in to another container so it’s not contaminated mated with crap or bits.

Looks like contamination of the roller or the paint from here. As above sand back, strain and use a new roller.

thanks for your reply

can i assume that the contract matt is a thicker type of paint, and this would act as a "filler?" i tried painting over a chip to see and it didn't fill it. i've sanded the whole ceiling yesterday.

It’s a thinner paint for sealing plaster. You could either use that or some watered down paint you already have to hand.

When I say fill and sand I don’t mean using paint I mean using powder filler or ready mixed filler, then sand it down and fill again if you need to. The idea is to get the surface uniform and flat.

(Because there’s an imperfection in your ceiling from the chip)

Something like this

Then it should just be a case of painting the ceiling again :)

You’re welcome.
