Hi,

Whats the the procedure for painting ceilings:

Does anyone undercoat first?

I have a broken leather type artex finish, what would be the best paint - matt ? silk ? other ?
Would it be possible to roll this type if ceiling, what pile roller would I need ?
Can anyone recommend a decent paint, I want a really white finish

Trade matt in pure brilliant white, medium pile roller on a pole. work towards the light.

Ideally you'd want to sugar soap/degrease if it's a bathroom, must be washed down if it's a kitchen.

Medium pile? Errrm, have you seen the photo, it looks like 5-10mm sticky out bits to me (well to my spectacles). Not that it matters, I have started on some ozzie stuff before I move to Malbec :occasion5:

Photos can be deceptive. I'd have guessed 3/4mm max as it's quite close up. Done several lids which were artexed with medium pile...

I'm on Merlot after Cider, so that's 2 of my 5 a day.

Thanks for the replies, its quite thick in places, would a medium pile suffice ?

Do I need an undercoat or just 2 coats of chosen paint ?

Unless there is a lot of dirt which an undercoat may block (an oil based undercoat that is, and it is not really a blocker) an undercoat does not do very much.

Can you wash the ceiling down as my wine colleague suggested? Warm water, sugar soap, a lot of mess, rinse with more clean warm water and even more mess?

I would have thought you would have needed a long pile roller + a brush anyway to touch up what the roller could not get. The risk with a longer pile is the spray which will hit your wallpaper ... spray may happen anyway :-(

For what the cost of roller sleeves is, you can get a medium pile and a long pile (and there is a longer pile too) Hamilton perfection roller sleeve. You also need a handle for them. If the medium sleeve leaves too many gaps, use the longer sleeve and maybe you will be luckier. Easy enough to scrape the paint off the sleeve you will not use (get one of these https://www.toolstation.com/shop/Painti ... per/p22287) and wash it clean.

Use a Trade paint as Wine~o said. Hard to tell from a distance if you will need 2 coats or more.

You are doing better than me. I am on two small slices of bread with mouse droppings (seeds) and cheese. Finished the ozzie red grape juice, and I hope I am forgiven father because I continued with a Spanish Navarra (also red). Maybe the cucumber in the cheese sandwich in the freshly baked bread will make it for 2 a day :-( I am bad.

I agree with using a long pile roller as it would make the job faster and easier. I always use a long pile roller on a textured ceiling, no matter how heavy or light the texture.
