Roll on Drywall mud to cover imperfections on walls.


Can you dilute drywall mud so that you can roll a whole wall after wall paper removal??

I've done it many times. I mix 5gal mud with 1 gal white latex paint. Then roll on with a 1 3/4-2" thick cover. My final step is to strike the wall smooth with hawk and trowel. Work in 4'x4' sections.

Yes. Will it hide all of the areas? Depends on how bad the imperfections are.
