Can I paint my popcorn ceiling?
I have been painting my walls and notice that my ceiling looks yellowish. Can I paint this ceiling as well? I'm up for any ideas
A tiny dot of black exsperiment with a small bit in a paper cup till you get the color you want add black to it a drop at a time
Add white paint or a drop of black. Either one will tone it down.
Have you already painted? Then use a Faux finish such as sponge painting or dry brushing in a lighter or darker color to create an effect.
Yes. The paint is already on the walls. Could I dry brush it in gray?
Kathi, if you have already painted, you could do a fast gray-wash on the walls. Pick a low gloss medium gray. Use a roller to apply the gray on top of the turquoise. You could also water the gray down by adding a cup of water per quart of paint. This would make a smoother paint that rolls on faster and will cut the time and reduce the turquoise by 16%. Best of luck with this. I’m preparing to lighten the turquoise to more blue on the focal wall. We can each do this!
Thank you! That’s what I’ll do.
