What is the proportion of colored wall paint to add to white ceiling paint to create an appropriate tint for the ceiling. I have heard on part wall color to five parts ceiling paint.Has anyone any experience? Any tips.

Hi qdrukl,That ratio would be nice IMO.If you know you are going to try the contrast scheme,why don't you paint a strech of wall at the top.Pour 1 gallon wall paint in 5 white and paint a small area near the wall with the new ceiling color.If this doesn't do it for you, add 1/2 or 1 more gallon wall paint and try again.I would do the mixing of ceiling paint with all flat paints only.....Mike
