Is it ok to use Mud as heavy texture in bathroom


I did a heavy texture mud ceiling in a bathroom I finished a few years ago and have yet to notice any problems such as the mud falling away from screws and things like that.

So that makes me believe it's ok to do the same mud-texture in this current bathroom - on the walls and the ceiling (I am tiling the lower half of the bathroom and floor->ceiling tile in the shower-area)

Is there a problem with this plan that I don't see happening, yet, in the other bathroom? Should I do texture some other way?

I am wondering about the type of mud to use - I have pre-mixed mud, which I've used before in the livingroom and other areas of the house (as well as the ceiling in teh other bathroom) but I've also come to learn about using pre-mixed thinset in bathrooms and how that's just not a good idea - does pre-mixed mud have this issue? If I use mud for thise purpose - Should I mix my own for this project?

I've done it before with all purpose premixed drywall compound. No problems.

Awesome I'll go with it - if it gives any problems in the future it'll be along time with me getting sick of the texture, anyway, and ready for a makeover.

Use ready mix and paint with a quality paint intended for bathrooms.
