I'm doing some drywall in my basement. I've got the first coat of mud and
tape on and ready for a sand. I used a General purpose Joint compound for
this coat. Someone suggesting I change to a "Light duty" compound for
subsequent coats. Drying time is not really an issue so is there another
benefit to buying a whole new bucket of a different kind? Will I get a
better result? Or do i Just go ahead and use the plenty of extra I have of
Topping or as you say "Light duty" compounds are usually easier to
sand. If your technique is good and you're not putting on huge gobs
of mud that you then need to sand off, go with what you've got.
You should aim to only have to sand the final coat anyway.
You'll know after you sand what you've got ;-)
