Q:I am looking to create a knockdown texture without the use of a sprayer. Is it possible to use this compound for joints? Then thinning out a portion of the compound out just enough to roll it onto the drywall and create the desired texture?

          Shrinkflation?
          My favorite type of drywall spackle has a fresh look with the black bucket. Unfortunately the bucket is less full than ever. It used to be you could expect it to be full up to near the top. This batch was a full 3” below the rim. I hope this is not a regular occurrence.

            Bought it and used it immediately with both mesh tape for regular sheetrock seams, and paper tape for corners. The consistency was perfect. It didn't drip but was pliable and easy to manipulate. A day later, I mixed it with water and, using a paint roller followed by a wide scraper trowel, I applied the skimcoat. I will by this product again.

            Great product for all my drywall taping work. When installed correctly, no issues with bubbling tape.

                Partially empty bucket
                When I got home 1/3 of the bucket was empty and missing product. I took it back and the whole pallet was that way. They cheated the customer even with these higher prices.

                  Easy for first time drywall project
                  Got two of these for my garage remodeling project. Just use a mixer attachment with your power drill to mix it up. Added a little water for final coat to thin it out - but just a little water. For a first time doing mudding, it was breeze to use in my opinion.

                    Excellent product, my wife and I are having a blast applthis product. Very easy but for first timers please mix it!!! It comes ready to use, but mix it because once you get how ever you need...(thick, thin, custard, yogurt, etc.) So EASY, skim coats excellently, and covers a lot, (2 buckets has done a livingroom, hallway, and kitchen) really good!!! We actually have popcorn walls(don't know what thats about), we tried to paint to over look it, did not work.
