Question:

What kind of paint roller cover do I use to paint my ceiling?

I am using Dutch Boy Ceiling Solutions, the kind that goes on purple and dries white. I primed with FastPrime over new drywall. I put one coat of the DB on and it looks like poo. I painted in grids, but got uneven coverage and you can tell where the drywall tape was. Maybe the roller I used was wrong for the app? Or did I just do a crummy job. I have painted many a room before, but not many ceilings.

Answer:

New drywall may need multiple coats to get complete coverage. Do not paint in a grid. Start at one side and work across always keeping a wet edge. The method you are using will always produce uneven results.
