What can I use to remove paint from ceiling? If you have a larger chunk of paint splatter, simply use a paintbrush to carefully spread the paint stripper on the ceiling surface. Give the paint stripper a little bit of time — about 20 – 30 minutes, to soften the paint. Then you take a putty knife and gently scrape off the excess paint.
