Painting ceiling is my plan correct?

Discussion in 'Painters' Talk' started by I think that goes there, Mar 13, 2021.

  1. Hello,

    I’m going to be painting my bathroom ceiling which was never primed (new build) and after 5 years has started to peel so can’t really argue with it.

    I’ve removed all of the peeling / flaking and sanded down the edges but need a little help on the ordering of the next steps, this is my current plan:

    1, Use a fine surface filler with a tapping knife for better coverage.

    2, Lightly sand the area and fill again.

    3, Wipe down and coat the entire ceiling with Peel Stop.

    4, Prime with Zimmer 1.2.3.

    5, Two top coats of Dulux Bathroom Easy Care.

    Just looking for feedback to make sure I’ve got it the right way around.

  2. Thinking about it would I be better swapping 3 & 4?

    After filling and sanding priming the bare plaster sections with bullseye 123 and THEN coating with Peel Stop?

    My recommendation would be:

    - eradicate any mould growth
    - apply peel stop to any loose or flaking paint
    - fill
    - 1 maybe 2 coats bullseye 123, then your top coats
