I'm patching a hole (about 6 inches in diameter) in our wall. Will this work well?

Asked by: Ash
For sure, you will want to improvise a plug for stability. Since you mentioned a "diameter"-dimension, perhaps the best youtube video example of a 'circular' repair is "Paul's Toolbox", search for ("Easiest wall FIX EVER!" - v=EXhDlDBzXjY )

Can this be mixed with water for a more dilute paste?
Asked by: bill
We didn't need to. We had no problem smoothing it out or sanding. You could always try a small amount when you buy it. But why would you want to? Hope this message is helpful.

Can I use this to fill in scratches in drywall made by my dog?
Asked by: Alyssa
Yes you can. You will first need to make sure that all blemishes are below the surface. Meaning, if any part of the damaged area protrudes above the surface you will need to either cut it out or tap it hard enough to sink it below the surface. Once all of the area is indented it can easily be filled with the mud.

The 3.5 qt. size means you will require a lot of buckets for the typical job. This size bucket is kind of handy, but you are obviously paying a fair amount for just the container. I clean up some of them, and keep them in the shop. When using, it's a good idea to prevent any plaster from hardening in the bucket. This means to clean up the sides of the bucket, and level off the plaster in the bucket when storing. I remove most of the plaster with a putty knife, and use a damp paper towel to clean up the residue. You don't want any hard lumps of plaster when trying to smooth things out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and workable product Sheetrock brand all-purpose pre-mixed joint compound has good consistency and is easy to spread. It dries in about a day and is easy to sand. It is a very good product and a good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from long life shelf life on this after opening was amazing! I got tired of throwing out 1/2 5 gallon buckets due to mold,the one gallon size is easier to store in limited areas. after opening the bucket and using a small amount,I resealed the bucket and after 6 months I reopened it and it was as clean as the day I used it!

Used for taping a butt-joint ceiling repair; subsequently used for flattening out and finally for applying an orange-peel knock-down texture. This was ideal SIZE for covering all the needs of the 2' x 4' square repair. Product's original MOISTURE was just right, and since I opted to cheat and do the knock-down without use of my air-compressor setup (ie. the ol' plastic bag over a sponge method, see youtube for examples) -- the product's original consistency did not need to be thinned down for the texturing (note: I allowed a 5-7 minute delay period between applying to allow setting up and then performing the final knock-down.

Today, I had to fill in some holes I made intentionally when I couldn't remove the bracket holding the old fluorescent light fixture up. I didn't need much so I opted for this little tub which was more than enough for my project. In my opinion, the consistency is great and living in the desert I just mixed it up a bit before plastering the ceiling. None of the joint compound wanted to come out and I added a heaping amount for good measure. In the dry hot desert this cured quick plus i had a high velocity fan on it as well you know for good measure :) About 5 hours after patching the ceiling I installed my new LED light fixtures in the garage and it held strong! First time user and I had a great experience all in all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats other products for conistency I've always used this product. Was in other box store and needed some for quick remodel work and didn't want to buy large bucket. They didn't carry USG in this size. In a hurry I bought the DAP product and was sorry I did. The DAP product has the consistency of caulk and spreads like it and smears and hard to build up. Always go with the USG green bucket and you won't be disappointed.
