I need to remove part of the popcorn finish on the ceiling above our shower, to make some repairs to minor water damage (due to leakage from the tub above). I’m wondering what techniques I should try to do this.
The finish, from when the house was built in 1976, is not the big popcorn-sized lumps of 50 years ago, but smaller bits about 1/4″ in diameter. It’s covered with maybe 3 layers of latex paint.
I figure I’ll try a plain old spatula-style putty knife first, but I also have a MultiMaster and figured I might try the scraper blade for that. I have maybe 4-6 square feet that needs removing — any suggestions?
