I've painted quite a few ceilings and I have never thought about this,
but it really does makes sense I suppose - for walls too in some
I would guess that you would "roll" perpindicular to the
main light source so as to minimize roll marks.
This assumes that your drywall/plaster is perfect to start with-
mine never is.
Next time I do a ceiling, I am definitely going to try to impress
SWMBO and anyone else standing by!
Thanks for the tip.
a) you wouldn't roll solely in one direction anyway, you'd roll in a couple
directions and at angles to any straight lines in the room
b) with flat paint and careful application, it won't matter anyway.
