My go-to ceiling paint
I have found that this is the most effective ceiling paint for old VJ ceilings. I have been painting over ceilings with different colours and raw timber in the one room, 11ft high.
The thickness is one of the main reasons I prefer to use this product - when combined with a deep nap roller it does not drip much at all compared to other “premium” paints I have tried. This combo helps the paint to find it’s way into the grooves and stay there - where other paints would be raining down all over place. I still brush the grooves but there’s less to...do since the roller gets most of it done. The premium paints I tried on other rooms required 3-4 coats for a reasonable result and were a headache to use on 11ft ceilings. This paint looks even better with just 2 coats. The brushed edges blend seamlessly with the rolled area. I’m sure other paints have their benefits, but in my opinion this is the best paint for VJ ceilings!

Renovating our house and have used the standard bp ceiling paint, 2 coats, in bedrooms and hallways with a fantastic result. Thought I would try the timesaver paint and prime for lounge and kitchen ceilings ,(maybe get away with one coat) did all the right prep works and after 2 coats the finish is terribly patchy. Don’t understand why!

British ceiling paint and prime
I use this product all the time this by far the best ceiling paint I have found.
Cover imperfections and you can usually get away with one coat over existing paint

Dead on the money....
Dead on the money.... Bought from bunnings. Prepped my old ceilings properly, cleaned and sanded them and had no issues with this product. Thick and fully textured so needs to be stirred vigorously for about 10 minutes.... Excellent hiding power, good coverage and dries quickly..... Top product....

Too thick to use
Waste of time. Too thick to stir and roller wouldn’t absorb it. Wasted time and expense. Bunnings refunded paint but lost money on roller and paint tray. Have used dulux paint without difficulties. This is the third time I have tried a brutish paint product. All have been disappointing. Will stick with dulux
Paint and Prime ceiling paint. We have spent a substantial amount of money on 2 x 10ltr cans of this paint. We have just spent $1000's on having our ceilings rescrewed and plastered. Fantastic job. Then to paint. What a mess. The paint is too thick. The build up on the roller makes it almost impossible to use. We now have ceilings that are patchy and thick roller marks everywhere. The cornices have had 2 coats and their still patchy. I think we will have to sand it all back and start all over again with a different ceiling paint. Any advice would be really appreciated. The time and money ( paid a friend to help paint)spent on this is crazy)
