Make sure to prepare only as much as you can use in the amount of work time specified by the manufacturer. Use lightweight setting-type compound because it is easier to sand. For the other two coats, use an all-purpose compound. These drying-type compounds are available premixed and can be thinned with water if setup begins prematurely. Add small amounts of water to avoid overthinning and mix using a hand masher. If compound is too thin, add thicker compound from another container. Remix periodically if the liquid begins to separate and rise to the top.

Note: Each manufacturer has its own proprietary materials and methods for mixing, using, and applying veneer plaster systems. Always follow the detailed instructions provided by the manufacturer for the products you use. Veneer plaster can be troweled smooth or textured using standard techniques (see pages 94 to 97). As an alternative to paint, many manufacturers also offer pigment additives in a variety of colors. Scratches and other superficial flaws are therefore less noticeable, because the plaster itself is colored.

The goal is to remove excess joint compound and crowned seams, smooth out tool and lap marks and feather the edges so they blend into the panel surface. How much sanding is required depends on the quality of the taping job and the level of finish you need for the final decoration (see pages 62 to 63). Sanding drywall is a two-step process: pole sanding to remove excess compound and feather edges, and hand sanding to take care of the final smoothing work.
