  1. How to paint a long ceiling , about 21long and 7 meters wide meters long ? It is not possible to paint it in one seasion

  2. Not very impressed with your K508 1x ultra flat ceiling paint. Not only was the coverage estimate quite wrong (was told 2, ended up with 7!), but application was incredibly challenging with this product. I needed 3 coats on my fully primered basement ceiling. Results were areas of flashing and shadow boxing all over. It was only after our 3rd coat and a very careful and precise application of the paint did we achieve some limited success. For the price I paid for this product, I expected better results. Very disappointed and will probably not use a BM product again. Too fickle to work with.

  3. We are using delphinium blue for walls it appears cool. What white ceiling paints do you recommend to compliment? The lighting for the room will be daylight so bright. I don't want the ceiling paint to be too white though that would hurt my eyes. Please help.

  4. Friendly tips! I would have use the Richard 2 1/2 gooseneck flexible paint brush extension to cut around the ceiling! Also I would have recommended a 15 to 20 mil nap to avoid lap marks! Another tip when painting a ceiling do not stretch the paint! Cheers!
