Repair a cracked ceiling
Over time, ceilings often tend to crack slightly and their paint peeling off. To give them a second youth, it is imperative to renovate them before repainting.
Tools and materials needed:
A knife to coat.
Saint-Marc type laundry.
Sandpaper with very fine grain.
A small brush (or tampax with blue applicator).
Step1: preparation of the surface.
Start by removing the chipped pieces of paint with a knife.
Dilute the Saint-Marc laundry in a bucket of water (count 100 grams per liter), then wash the ceiling with a sponge and rinse with plenty of water.
With the scraper widen the cracks, removing all the parts that no longer adhere.
Step 2: Repair the surface.
Moisten cracks with a fine brush to promote adhesion of the plaster.
Apply a first coat of plaster to the knife and allow to dry according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Once the first coat is completely dry, go for a second.
Step 3: finishes.
With a very fine grit, sand the plaster until the surface becomes perfectly smooth and flat.
Finally, the roller ceiling must be repainted for a clean and uniform result.
