Valspar® Color-Changing Ceiling Paint

Painting a ceiling is a challenging job - never miss a spot with Disappearing Purple technology. It goes on a light purple color so you can see what you've covered. It then dries to an ultra white, super flat finish with no glossy glare and conceals flaws in one coat.

  • Usage
    Properly prepared durable texture or plain interior ceiling surfaces including previously painted and properly primed plaster, wallboard, sheetrock and acoustical tile. See surface preparation for "blown-on" soft-fibered ceiling surfaces.
  • Prep
    Thoroughly clean the surface and allow to dry. Remove wallpaper and loose, peeling paint. Remove gloss from shiny surfaces. Patch cracks and spot prime. Use Valspar Bonding Primer Sealer to seal waterstained areas or stains from smoking.
  • Application
    Stir paint thoroughly. Intermix containers to ensure uniform color. Apply with a premium-quality roller, polyester brush or airless sprayer. Paint the ceiling, rolling from dry area into wet area using firm, crisscross strokes. Finish with long, even strokes in one direction. At first, the paint will be a light purple color allowing you to see where you have painted. The purple will disappear as the paint dries, being replaced by the customary white color.
