Ceiling has patches that look chalky. - The Practical House Painting Guide

Ceiling has patches that look chalky.


I’m a first time painter and do not like the way the ceiling turned out. I first used a flat white ceiling paint but didn’t think it looked uniform. I opted for a second coat of super white eggshell.

The ceiling now has patches that look chalky and I don’t know what can be done to make it look better.

I certainly would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

  1. It’s possible the ceiling just needs another coat of eggshell. Ceiling paint is a dead flat sheen and somewhat hard to cover is one pass, showing through the eggshell in a few areas. This happens, 2 coats are always better than 1.

    The ceiling paints we have used in the past don’t cover well and need multiple coats when applied by roller, best applied with a paint sprayer. When rolling any ceiling with any paint it is best to use the best paint you can afford and use a natural lambs skin roller cover, 1/2 inch for fairly smooth surfaces and 3/4 inch for most textures.
