Ceiling Oil Spots

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

My 7 year old put gel clings on his ceiling (lovely). They were there for weeks before I got to take them down. Now their are oil stains all over the ceiling. What kind of paint product would cover these oil marks? Regular paint so far has the oil bleeding through. Thank you

You need to PRIME the whole ceiling with a Pigmented Shellac Sealer Primer, then finish coat it with Sherwin Williams Classic-99 Acrylic (color of choice, use a flat finish for ceilings)… Good Luck!

If there are only a few small spots you can spot prime, could use a spray can of BIN primer.
