Painting A Tin Ceiling
Aluminum ceilings are painted before they get pressed to the ceiling, and painting them is easy. In truly harsh wear and tear areas it can be a good idea to consider powder coating. Brushes with a width of about 2-3 inches are the largest you should use when painting the base color of your panels. Keep in mind that the ceiling will always be quite a few feet over your head so exceedingly fine details may not be seen from that distance.
