Hi MIKE J, I was successful in obtaining the results I was expecting thanx to your detailed instructions. Now I want to paint the ceiling sky blue with clouds using S&W paint, but I don't know what kind of primer I should use. I removed a popcorn ceiling, sanded the joints, remuded, sanded again, and remuded 1 more time, now the ceiling is smooth and ready to be primed.

Good Afternoon BEE40, You must have us over to enjoy your work some evening..LOL. My #1 choice for a latex primer is Richards Holzout II. If you don't have a Richards dealer near you and want to use S.W. I just finished spraying more than a hundred gallons of Preprite Pro-Mar 200 and am very impressed with this primer. It is 100% acrylic and would provide a nice base for your ceiling. Don't be sold the Preprite Classic, at 2.00 more per gallon the Preprite 200 is far superior. They can mix it to 75% of the base color and should allow one coat to cover if you will use Pro-Mar 200 or better for base coat....Mike
