Ceiling paint

I'm getting ready to paint the ceiling in a new room. I've always used SW and have been happy with it. I'm curious about the Ace and SW color changing paints...has anyone tried them? Or should I stick with SW Superpaint?

If you have good results with the super paint - I'd stick with it. I've not used any of the color changing ceiling paints but their main purpose is to help those who have trouble correctly applying paint to a ceiling. Because of the color change, it is easier to see where you've been [or missed] while the paint is still wet.

Most ceiling paints have a flatter [sheen] finish than a typical flat wall latex. Personally, I've always gotten better results using a wall paint on the ceiling, but I do have yrs of experience and tend to apply a heavier coat of paint - some diyers tend to try and stretch the paint - the changing color ceiling paint is formulated to help them.

I've had perfectly good results with both Classic99 and ProMar 200 on my ceilings. (Extra White Flat. the '99 is available in a Ceiling White, but I haven't used it.)

Really, I think the quality of a ceiling coat is highly dependent on your technique, as opposed heavily dependent on the product, like a wall. I believe any paint that is not completely useless should be fine, even for a DIY.

Use good roller technique on your ceiling, and it should go just fine.
