But as we said, it can't be sanded because it will not be dry, and it can't be painted because it will not be dry. Do you just paint over it wet?

I have lost you. 5 minute compound will dry in about 5 minutes. Press your tape into it like you would bucket mud. When that dries, skim over the top like you would but use hot mud for that two. 20 would be a better bet for the first pass so you saturate the tape.

No, you do not want to prime or paint wet compound.

It sets in 5 minutes. It won't dry for a long time, and it can't be sanded or painted until it does.

Drywall patch in one day


I have used hot mud for years and have used most of the tricks, use hot water to mix, use dirty water to mix, all to make it set up faster. But the disadvantages to hot mud are, hard to work with, and as stated can be covered when set not dry, and this can and does cause problems with paint and primer. I will continue to use hot mud in most situations, but for a patch I want done quickly I will use this mix. All I'm saying is try it, you can get a small tub of plaster of paris at the box store for a couple bucks. The first couple times you may have a little problem with the drying time till you get the mix right. Another disadvantage for hot mud is by drying be chemical reaction you must clean all your tools well between batches because if you don't once that reaction starts and you put more mud in the reaction starts immediately and the mud will set before you can use it. And for someone not used to hot mud the tendency when it starts to stiffen is add more water and this makes it brittle. All I'm sayings for doing patch work on jobs that would take 2 days even with hot mud I can now do in a day including prime and paint.
