Anonymous asked 10 years ago

Do I have to put 2 coats of primer on new spackle on ceiling or can I just use 1 and then use ceiling paint?

Use Pigmented Shellac… one coat locally where spackled… unless you have lots of repairs, then do the whole ceiling… then paint…
BTW "Ceiling Paint" is just a GIMMICK Product… any good quality paint can be use for ceilings…

You can get a good primer in a spray can for spot priming a few patches. Zinsser shellack or Cover Stain are available in a spray can. Dave is correct that shellack is the best but others will work fine.
