Can someone tell me how to match paint for a ceiling touch up job?
I cut a small patch of dry wall paper out of the ceiling and had paint made at Home Depot TWICE! Still doesn't match. Trying to feather the edges next. Using dead flat ceiling paint. Any thoughts of a solution to paint the ceiling? Thanks.

Just repaired a section where the drywall tape was separating From ceiling. Didnt want bright white ceiling paint to make repair stand out even more so I added some light grey paint to the ceiling paint until it was more of an off white very very light grayish. Seems to match pretty good. I was happy with it. Now in my closet I had to repair a corner of the ceiling and after painting that spot the rest of the ceiling looked like old pale yellow color. So I just painted the whole thing bright white since it was a lot smaller ceiling area than the bedroom.
Paint looks lighter than the paint swatch when it is wet, then dries darker. When dry it should match the paint swatch exactly.
Most big box stores have a computer that will match your paint sample. Take a sample with you to the paint dept and let them do their magic.
Find a hidden spot, maybe a closet or behind a outlet where you can slice off a small piece of the paint you want. Take it to a paint store that has a computer match for tinting. Lowes, Home Depot and any major paint store has that available.
Take a paint chip from the wall to a paint store and they can match it for you!
What they said:) I'd take a sample to have the paint matched.
They only need a sample about the size of a nickel for the computer to match.
you will have to take a large enough chip with you for any paint store to do a color match
Hi Tim, your best bet is repaint the ceiling, you will never match the old paint, and new paint will really lighten up your room.
Seems like it would simpler in the long run to just repaint the entire ceiling and keep the can lid which contains info to help the paint store match that color.
You're stuck with painting the entire ceiling for best results.
Forget about getting small pots of touch up paint. Get a colour you like and do the lot. The colour of the ceiling will vary all over because of the conditions in the room right under any one spot eg: smoke or age related atmosphere.
Your better off painting the whole ceiling. The touch up paint they mixed for you at the store almost never will match unless it comes from the same can or buckle the ceiling was painted from, sorry.
