drywall mud coating ?????

I'm attempting to fix my inlaw's carport ceiling. It has drywall coated with drywall mud that is flaking and falling off in spots. I've chipped off as much as I can and some areas are still stuck on there pretty good. I want to recoat the ceiling but have some questions. Do I need to use a primer on the whole ceiling first and then coat it with the mud? It was painted after the mud was coated last time so I have that do deal with also. I'll paint it again after it's done this time too. If my way is the wrong way, how should I go about fixing this?

I'm trying to remember exactly how I textured my basement walls and my stairway walls and ceiling. As I recall I mixed dry taping mud, I think it's called Quickset, [ it's the cement like product that's sold in 20 lb bags, has a 90, 60, 3o or 15 on bag indicating it's working or set up time- read the label) with inexpensive latex paint and I used a texturing roller. The goop set up and dried very quickly and it has been up for 8 yrs. now. It's possible the idea for this was found on the bag's label. The stuff is unsandable and for all practical purposes is cement. I used it in an inside application; I suspect one of the tradespeople will give you a better plan for your outside application though I wouldn't hesitate doing this again. Good luck. Cliff

Yes, you'll want to prime, mud, then re-prime
