All purpose ready made, drying type, setting type...? or doesn't matter...
Just use all purpose ready mix in the 5 gallon bucket.
Mix it with about 1 to 2 cups of water.
Use a heavy duty drill with a plaster mixing paddle. (I believe HD carries the paddle). Clean paddle after using it.
If the mix sits for a day or more between uses, add water and re-mix.
You want to get it to the consistency of yogurt. That allows the paper tape to flow easily, as you pull it out of the banjo.
