Where to Use

Properly prepared coated and uncoated Interior Ceilings.  For water stains, apply MARQUEE Ceiling Paint as a primer to the stained area prior to topcoat.

Usage Summary
Preparation
  • Properly prepare and clean all surfaces.
  • Remove loose paint, wash off dirt and grease with detergent, rinse and allow to dry. 
  • Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain remover. 
  • Scuff sand glossy surfaces and repair imperfections. 
  • Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
  • Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting. 
  • Darker colors may require additional dry time between coats. ​
Prime
  • Use MARQUEE Paint as a primer for properly prepared uncoated, glossy, porous or repaired ceilings. 

STAINED SURFACES:

  • Lock in water stains with MARQUEE Ceiling Paint as a spot primer. 
  • For heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying MARQUEE Ceiling Paint to a small section. 
  • If the stain bleeds through, spot prime with another coat to the stained area and test again before topcoating. 
  • If bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before topcoating.

 

Application
  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Stir paint occasionally.   
  • Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.   
  • Use a high quality 3/8-1/2" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015-.019" spray tip, 60 mesh filter). 
  • Popcorn style acoustic ceilings; use acoustic ceiling roller cover (1/2-3/4" nap) or airless sprayer (.015-.019" spray tip, 60 mesh filter). 
  • Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting. 
  • Darker colors may require additional dry time between coats. 
  • Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time.

MARQUEE® Stain-Blocking Paint and Primer Ceiling Paint is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covered terribly bright purple! We bought the product in a light blueish green and white for trim color, to cover up a half painted, super bright purple bathroom. Indeed, one coat coverage. I couldn't believe my eyes! Prep took more time than the painting did and I was ecstatic. Changed my life. Walking into a beautiful, bright bathroom can start your day pretty well! Only took an evening for the whole process.
