Help with painting scripture on bedroom ceiling?

I'm wanting to paint 1 Corinthians 13 on our bedroom ceiling in some sort of spiral design. I just want it to be pretty and look professional. I'm weary about doing the spiral design thought because I just don't know how I would get it just right... but I can't think of any other design that would look right.. I think it would look funny just written straight across on the ceiling. Anyone have any ideas or tips on doing this?

Answer:

That will be tough to do - how about writing it across the top of the walls - like a border? Otherwise you'll need to plot it out on graph paper and mark a grid on the ceiling very faintly with pencil or a chalk line & follow the grids from the paper onto the ceiling.

I agree that it might be nice as a border or on the wall. If you really want a spiral on the ceiling you ought to do it first on a big piece of tracing paper and then transfer it onto the ceiling. (It would be really hard to work free hand on the ceiling and have it look nice) There are various ways to transfer using the paper like tracing over the back of the letters with a special soft pencil then putting the paper in place and re tracing over the front of the letters. It will leave a faint line for you to paint over later.

I would sketch it out in pencil first. That way you could erase what does not look good before committing to the design in paint.
