    This video appears correct but is Full Of Errors… and beginners should disregard a lot of the info given…

    Specifically:

    Choosing “Ceiling Paint” is a typical mistake for ceilings… “Ceiling Paint” is just a GIMMICK that manufacturers use to sell you paint for a specific surface… you can use regular paint on ceilings as well as walls…

    You don’t need to always paint ceilings white… any color that works for your decor is ok…

    It’s wise to use a flat finish for most ceiling, it will hide imperfections better than sheen finishes…

    No pre brush or roller cover, spraying with solvent is necessary… just work your tool into the paint beforehand sufficiently first before applying the paint…

    The video severely lacks showing Proper Brushing, Cutting and Rolling Techniques… for example the painter doesn’t really know how to cut into the ceiling correctly or how to roll the surfaces properly… if a beginner attempts to emulate the movements shown, he/she will end up with a poor finish…

    No taping is required for brushing or rolling… learn proper techniques and taping will not be necessary…

    Drying time before recoating (for acrylic paint) is only about 1-2 hrs depending on temp and humidity…

    There are many more errors in this video and I would Caution Home Depot against posting these without first checking with real professionals on the content reliability and correctness … [this is just my professional opinion and NOT the opinion of this web site]…
