thin enough to be used as a skim coat or should i just buy some
CGS dust control which is already ready mixed?
Ridges must be sanded smooth
No don't use 45 to skim coat and by adding more water it makes it very weak.
Dust control hard to sand and not easy to work with .
To skim the easiest I have used is the ultra lite. It's at the depot has a puke green lid-not the bright green lid. Easy to work with and sands easy.
