Default Plaster Ceiling

I just got done painting my walls in my entery way and bathroom. I rolled the paint on and got some on the plaster ceiling what is the best way to remove the wall paint from the plaster ceiling?

The best way to deal with this is to paint over the affected area. Hopefully you have the paint color for the ceiling and can just touch up the affected areas. Anything that will remove the paint like a stripper or scraping will damage discolor or remove material in the surrounding area as well.

Use a poultice-type paint remover called "Peel Away"
