Can this be used to add texture to a wall if thinned out (garage wall)?

Asked by: Declan
It can be done, but it will be much faster drying to use 90 minute, 45 minute or 20 minute powdered joint compound. Mix it yourself to the desired thickness if your hand troweling or if you’re going to use a texture sprayer to create a finish or to knock it down those I mention will be better. Your project will dry in faster and your finished outcome will be prepared for your finished wall paint. You can get some great outcomes without a ton of time and effort using a gun. A hand trowel can also make for a good finish as long as you practice and have a consistent technique. To your success!

Can this product be used as a taping mud or what is recommended for quick setting joints.
Asked by: James
James Thank you for your inquiry. Sheetrock Plus 3 Lightweight Joint Compound can be used for taping joints. Ready mix joint compounds are drying type. The drying time depends on the room temperature and humidity; as well as how thick the compound was applied. Setting type joint compounds such as Durabond and Easy Sand are sometimes referred to as "quick setting". They come in powder form and harden chemically once water is added. Hope this helps.
