A: Depends on temp, humidity, and how thick you apply. For most situations best to plan for 24 hours between coats. Thinner coats and using fan/fans to circulate air will shorten drying time.
A: I put on a coat & let it dry overnight. A tip - put it on the wall, let it set up a while, then take a moist sponge (or more aggressively a Scotch Brite Pad) & flatten out the imperfections. Lessens the amount of sanding & dust & speeds up the job.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. The drying time for ready mixed joint compounds varies depending on temperature, humidity and how thick it was applied. Ready mixed joint compounds can be applied up to 1/8" thick. The minimum room temperature should be 50 degrees Fahrenheit and the room should be well ventilated. There is no specific drying time that can be given due to the differences in jobsite conditions. If you are unsure if the compound is completely dry you can test it by applying plastic film over an area and taping it on all 4 sides. Wait overnight and if droplets of moisture appear on the underside of the film then the compound is not yet dry.
A: Jana Thank you for your inquiry. You will need to confirm compatibility with wall paper manufacturer.
A: Adriane Thank you for your inquiry. Sheetrock All Purpose Joint Compound is a full weight product. For something lighter weight and easier to sand use Sheetrock Plus 3 joint compound which weighs up to 25% less than conventional-weight compounds so handling and applying are simpler, easier and faster. Hope this helps.
A: No it's very easy to use
A: Thank you for your inquiry. When taping and finishing joints, thinning with water may improve joint compound application. Add clean water in half-pint increments, remix and trial apply until preferred consistency is reached. Over dilution causes abnormal shrinkage, poor bond and other negative effects. Do not mix with any other material. Hope this helps.
A: Typically you do not need any water. Working it with a 6” sparkle knife after a few times makes it very loose. Work it on the drywall in consecutive passes (ie6”, them 8 or 10” and finally with a 12 or 14” knife. Scrape with knife and then run a damp sponge to smooth and feather the edges.
A: Of course
A: Yes you can. I patched a ceiling in queens Newyork by adding water to the mixture in several different small batches
