    I'm in the process of painting my popcorned ceiling, as I was rolling it, some of the popcorn finish came off, leaving smooth spots on my ceiling. Is there a spray i can buy at Lowes/Home Depot that will fix it???
    Or what do I do??

    I recently dealt with that in my home. The popcorn, when it gets, gets loose and can come down. If you don't want it, just spray with water and get a scraper. It will be messy. In that room I chose to remove it.

    To keep it up, yes--there is a spray at the big boxes that will patch it. What worked for me was to get an oil based primer and put a coat on the other rooms. This did not wet the popcorn and sealed it, so that my latex ceiling paint did not make the stuff come down.
