This weekend brought me to my sister's house for an early Thanksgiving family dinner. My sister's house was built in the early to mid 1970s, a little out of the mid-century era, but still with some interesting touches. One of my favorite things in her house is the ceiling. To the best of our knowledge, it hasn't been painted since the house was built. It is a popcorn ceiling, which usually isn't my taste, but I really like this one. The paint used on the ceiling has glitter in it. When the light shines on it, the sparkle effect is amazing. However, if the light isn't right, they just look like black specks as you can see in the above photo. Does anybody know what the process is to create a glittered ceiling like this? You can see some of the sparkle in the last photo.
