While replacing the roof shingles, it rained and leaked water to the dry wall ceiling. A few days later it dried OK, but started to bubble up the ceiling paint and it cracked in places. In some places the ceiling paint is still bonded strongly to the ceiling. How can I scrape the whole ceiling easy before I prime and repaint? It seems that there was no primer applied to the ceiling before. Please help.

I'm trying to remove my bathroom ceiling paint. Most of it scrapped off easily, but the rest is very stubborn. Is there an easy way to remove it?
Why are you removing the paint? Is there some fancy wood underneath? If so, get a paint stripper from your paint store. Is it stipple? That often comes off very easily if you spray it with water and scrape it off after it has soaked for a few minutes and softened up. If you are repainting, there is no need to remove the paint.
