Can i skim coat over my painted popcorn ceiling? DIY
In this DIY skim coating video I’m going to answer a question I get all the time. Can I skim coat over my painted popcorn ceiling? A lot of times when someone goes to scrape off and remove popcorn ceiling that’s been painted it’s very difficult to remove. If not impossible to scrape off that’s where skim coating comes in to the picture. On this painted popcorn ceiling project I’ll be skim coating over it using a 14 inch drywall taping knife, 16 inch stainless steel mud pan and an all-purpose joint compound made by USG. Just skim coating projects popcorn ceiling is also an older ceiling (pre 1978) which could have as asbestos or lead paint. So it’s best to encapsulate an old-school popcorn ceiling like this instead of tearing it out and re-doing the drywall. It’s a lot more cost-effective to do it this way I hope you enjoyed the video! Thanks so much for watching, -Paul
