Angry Removing Small Paint Splotches from a textured ceiling.

Hi everyone. I am new to this board.

This weekend I attempted my first paint job ever and did pretty well. However, in all 3 of the rooms I painted I have several small spots on my ceiling where the roller accidently hit it. How can I remove these spots from our textured ceilings without wrecking the ceiling or ruining my freshly painted walls?

Thanks for any advice people can give.

Jen

Hi Jeni...let's look at this hypothetically a moment...if you had painted the ceilings (the preferred method), then the walls and this problem cropped up, you could touch up the ceiling by dabbing some left over ceiling paint with a brush and problem solved. You could still do this if the old ceiling paint is fairly fresh and not discolored. If however, it is not, and you want to touch it up (buy a quart of paint), the new fresh white paint may stand out, appear whiter and flatter than the old. So it's best to knock off the ceiling first, then the walls. Try the touch-up dabbing method and you may be alright here. If it's really bad, you may need to try the harder route and paint your ceiling after the walls are finished. You'd need to mask off the top of the walls to do this. For now, just try stippling, dabbing the ceiling paint over your boo-boo and let us know how that works out.

Thanks a lot Keith. I will ask the contractor for a quart of the paint that they used to spray the ceilings. It is new construction and the ceilings were just sprayed within the last week. The touch up method should work then. I'll let you know how it goes. Again, thanks.
