We are attempting to skim coat over a stomp textured ceiling (400
square feet). Scraping is
not an option. Pics of ceiling available at:
We're not sure what material to use. The lady at home depot suggested
we use 'Polyfix smooth surface filler'.
Is this a good choice? Besides being expensive, it seems to me that it
would be better suited for fixing small imperfections as opposed to
smoothing out an entire ceiling. Would it be better to use drywall
compound? What about some sort of plaster?
Also, any good tips for skim coating a ceiling? I want nice results and
want to avoid having the stuff crack, fall off, etc.
