I have a room done in 4 X 8 sheets of hardboard, 1/4" thick, from Home Depot. The "rough" side is the room side. The "rough" side has a grain on it about like screen wire. The "slick" side is shiny.
Has anyone tried to use joint compound on the "rough" side of hardboard to coat or texture it ?
I am concerned if the compound will "stick" as well as to drywall, and whether I should wet the hardboard before applying it ?
Thanks for any informed opinions on this...
