A: Thinning is not required. It's ready to use, but you may want to thin it, depending on how you plan to use it. I used it to texture a wall, and I needed to apply it with a paint roller, so I did thin it with water.
A: Nope. Not unless you want a thinner consistency
A: Kimberly USG does not recommend applying joint compound over wood paneling. Hope this helps.
A: Annita Thank you for your inquiry. We do not recommend adding paint, or anything other than small amounts of clean drinkable water to Sheetrock ready mix joint compounds. Hope this helps.
A: Justin The coverage rates for ready mix joint compounds are based on a level 4 finish. Approximately 10 gallons of All Purpose joint compound will finish 1000 square feet of wallboard up to a level 4 finish. Coverage approximates the amount of joint compound needed to treat the flat joints, inside corners and outside corners using metal corner bead, in a typical room. Coverage can vary widely depending on factors such as condition of substrate, tools used, application methods and other job factors.
A: I’m not sure if I can answer your questions - as posted. But I hung 40 (4’x8’) sheets - 3 coats used <4 buckets of mud
