I would like to repaint a ceiling covered with burlap. This burlap is over 35 years old. Which painting can I use?

Before repainting a ceiling covered with burlap, it is first necessary to ensure the good adhesion of the burlap on the ceiling. If this is not the case, it must be deposited and you will repaint the ceiling directly or you will cover it with paper to paint or glass.
A matte acrylic paint may be suitable. Nevertheless, it is necessary to retain a painting of quality, with strong covering power, not too liquid. Burlap, especially if it has never been painted, has a high absorption capacity and can relax if it is soggy. Allow at least three times the usual consumption indicated on the pot.
