-Prime everything walls and ceiling.
-Hit the ceiling with finish paint, let the white or whatever color ceiling get on the walls, no big deal, just finish the ceiling.
- Once the ceiling is dried up, come in and box the walls in with their color, spray only at an angle. They have knuckles that let you hold your hand straight but the nozzle is angled. All free hand spray, no shield, no masking.
- Once that's done to the room, come in and spray up to the boxed in line.
- Let it all dry and just cut in the walls with a brush.
If done right you have virtually no over spray and if you do it's easy to touch up, better than cutting in the ceiling by hand all the way around. No masking necessary, save money there too.
That's the way I have done it.

I have tried that to an extent. Not with the knuckle though.
In general, I like to just cut and roll finish on walls. I am glad I learned to spray finish too though, probably never would have tried it without my Florida experience. It can be just the trick in some situations.
