I recently did my first drywall job. If I had to give myself a grade it would be a C. I initially screwed up --- BIG. Way to much mud for the first coat. I had to sand it down. I did the second and third coat and thought I was doing fine... but, when I was done was able to wire the room lighting I realized my first crack at drywalling did not go so well.
I realized I should have had stronger lighting in the first place so that the imperfections would be more visible.
How thin of a coat are you suppose to apply.. feathered for each application of mud? I was trying to do that I felt I was applying too much pressure with the 12" taping knife. Geez, my hand was hurting. Any advice you can give me would be great!
