Chipped bathroom ceiling paint.

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

Ceiling was never primed and I was able to remove with ease most of the old paint that separated from the drywall, right down to the drywall. However around the perimeter of the ceiling where there is spackling the paint will not come off. Is it good practice to apply mud where the paint edges meets the drywall to hide the ridge? I really don’t want to skim coat the entire ceiling.

Skimming the entire ceiling isn't necessary. It is a common trick to skim the rough edges of stubborn paint with a patching compound, spackling paste, and sand that back to a smooth surface. Give it a try.
