joint compound

If its in a 5 gal bucket, take a mixer and remix. How long has the mud been stored, has it ever frozen, try to find a date. I had a friend give me a couple buckets of mud and when I opened them I could tell immediately they were worthless, so if the mud is not too old I would try re-mixing it. You can always use it to tape with.

If it is very discolored or if it smells bad, throw it out. Otherwise, mix it back in as advised above
