This technique works best on a smooth ceiling. If your ceiling is slightly rough -- just enough so that paint could seep underneath the painter’s tape after you press it in place -- start with a coat of paint the same color as the base coat or existing surface. Then switch to the color listed in the instructions. Any seepage from the first coat will blend with the base color. With slight modifications, use the ceiling border painting technique to create a square color accent above a light fixture.
