How to cover a stain on the ceiling without painting the whole ceiling
Holly Kinchlea-Brown on May 16, 2018you need to use a good primer like zinzer bin 123 to cover the stain before you repaint....but I think that you will need to repaint the whole ceiling...anything less will just look like a patch jobHelpful Reply
TAG on May 16, 2018Hi there im a painter and decorator a little tip is you can cover the stain by buying a stain blocker like zinsser 123 or if you have some left over oil based gloss (not the quick drying water based one) paint that over the top of the stain let it dry then paint over with white emulsion or what ever colour your ceiling is. I hope this helps 8)Helpful Reply
