Bummer, need to read the directions on the bucket/box; "SHEETROCK Midweight All-Purpose Joint Compound, Ready-Mixed, is an easy working and sanding, high-performance joint compound with multiple applications: embedding paper tape
; filling, leveling, and finishing gypsum panel joints, fasteners, bead, and trim; skim-coating; and hand-applying simple textures." From:http://www.usg.com/sheetrock-midweig...l#tab-features
Also need to read the label on the tape or the info on internet; "SHEETROCK MH TUF-TAPE joint tape is designed for reinforcing joints in manufactured housing wall and ceiling assemblies. It resists shrinking, tearing, stretching, and distortion, and is designed for use with strong, setting-type
joint compounds such as SHEETROCK MH Setting Type
Joint Compound TUF-SET and SHEETROCK MH Setting Type
Joint Compound TUF-SET HES." from; http://www.usg.com/sheetrock-mh-tuf-...oint-tape.html
Or the white mesh; "To finish the joint first coat the tape with SHEETROCK DURABOND® setting-type
or one of the SHEETROCK Easy Sand™ lightweight setting-type joint compounds. For smooth, finished joints, use SHEETROCK Easy Sand lightweight setting-type joint compounds or SHEETROCK ready-mixed joint compounds for the second and final coat.

Your board end-joints should not line up on one ceiling joist, "5.3 End joints parallel to and on the same side of framing
members shall be staggered between alternate courses
of gypsum panel products and from joints on the opposite side of the framing members." From; http://www.lafarge-na.com/GA-216-07_English.pdf
