We just removed popcorn ceilings in 4 rooms with one to go. You could use this paint for painting it but if I were you I really consider removing it. No matter how you paint the popcorn ceiling it will spatter. Also if you ever get a water spot or a stain that removes the texture when cleaned, it will always show.
It is a pain to remove and you should plastic drape the ENTIRE Room with plastic ( we used the kind to cover windows that come with double sided tape) and the floor I used old plastic shower curtains I saved for drop cloths. They can be moved easy from room to room and hosed off . We wet the ceiling with water in a garden sprayer let sit for about 10 min. then used scraper and a lot of elbow grease. Bought a scraper online that U use a plastic bag on, but did not work very well for the kind of sandy texture of ours.

Answer: 
It is for plaster or popcorn celling if you don't like the popcorn celling before you paint it might be worth just taking a trowel and scraping the popcorn off it comes off really easy if it hasn't been painted. Might be worth Doing a led test before you try to scrape it off to see if there is any lead it's an inexpensive check especially if the house was built before 1978.

white in the bathroom with primer and it turned out beautiful. Downstairs I used Peanut Butter

Dear JamesGang52,
Thanks for posting your question. You mentioned that your popcorn ceiling had never been painted, but the answer assumes that it's not brand new popcorn.
There are a couple tips for painting popcorn ceilings. First - be sure to only roll in one direction. If you pull the roller back and forth, it will dislodge the popcorn. Second - For any additional coats, make sure the first coat is 100% dry. Otherwise rewetting can dislodge material. The weight and saturation of the popcorn is a critical factor, so try to do light coats to avoid adding extra weight. We would also recommend wearing protective clothing and cover anything in case of spatter.
Another option is to spray. You can rent a sprayer at The Home Depot, and then follow the directions that come with the sprayer. Again, make sure the first coat is 100% dry before applying a 2nd coat (and apply the second coat in the opposite direction from the first coat to allow for even coverage).
We hope that helps and good luck with your project! Read Less

Yes, this paint is excellent for popcorn ceilings. However, the method of application may need to be spraying. Since the popcorn hasn't been previously sealed, it may come off using a roller because of the moisture.

Yes, this paint is excellent for popcorn ceilings. However, the method of application may need to be spraying. Since the popcorn hasn't been previously sealed, it may come off using a roller because of the moisture. If you can rub your hand across a small area of the ceiling and the popcorn comes loose, then spraying is the way to apply the paint. Once you seal the popcorn, future paint application may be gently rolled with a 1/2" nap roller. Be careful not to put too heavy of a coat of paint. Two light coats 24 hours apart are the best technique. Good luck with your project! Read Less

Answer: 
Hello and thank you for your question. If you are painting over a light color, you probably won’t need to prime. However if you see that there are heavy stains after prepping or you’re making a drastic color change, apply a primer coat of PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Stain-Blocking Ceiling Paint first. Be sure to follow all prep and back label instructions. Hope this helps and best of luck on your project!

Dear Rachie23,
Thanks for posting your question! It is important that your new ceiling surface is ready for painting. Recommendation for new stucco, plaster and masonry is to let it cure for a full 30 days before painting. Make sure there are no active water problems and that any previous water damage is also fully dry. We also recommend reading other helpful hints on the back label.

I am not a professional painter, so I am not sure that there isn't a sooner time to paint. I am sure someone in the paint department at Home Depot would be able to give you a more precise answer. Many of the people in the paint department are experienced professionals.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 317 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by awful Seems a lot of people liked this more than we did. We found every aspect of this paint inferior. We ended up having to switch brands and repaint. I'd steer clear of this stuff. January 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not impressed considering the cost Painting the ceiling in our basement and bought this because it was recommended and on sale. I think my biggest issue is how thick it goes on. I'm using a lot more paint than I projected because I'm having to load the roller every 10 seconds. Understand its paint/primer but I've never used any that was quite this thick. No issues with color or anything after drying, it does look good on the ceiling. Overall it seems fine, but next time I'll get something a little cheaper that should do the job well. April 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lap marks Far too many lap marks for me. 3 coats and still not happy. will NOY buy again. There wall paint is great though... May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for covering stains I had all of the popcorn ceilings removed from my home that had been there since 1977 when the home was built. Several of the ceilings had water stains from past leaks and were not paint-able. This paint covered and blocked the stains in a single coat and now my ceilings look great May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy I bought this paint for my ceilings. I have never used a paint that splatters as much as this one does. I used to use Sears paint exclusively but they do not make any more. Never had any splatter problems at all with the Sears paint . I will never buy this product again! April 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great coverage Purchased to paint ceilings, covers better than I expected. No need for the primer unless you have really bad stains. April 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Performed as expected I used this on 12" x 12" ceiling tiles that had become discolored with age after about 23 years. It spread evenly with no splattering in my face or on my glasses. It didn't completely hide a water stain I discovered inside a closet. I didn't expect it to though, so I just got a stain killing product to cover it. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by does the job paint was easy to use, thick enough to not drip, and covers well. April 19, 2016
