Mike have you tried the ultra lite for skimming, it has the puke green lid. The first time I used it was after a wall paper removal. And I really like it for that easy to apply, easy to pull and easy to sand. I don't think I would use it to tape, but it would work good as a topping. Would be interested in your opinion after you try it.

Drywall/Paint Question


Tool, I'm just now using puke green lid for the first time and I agree, it's great. Got it at HD. I've now achieved practically zero sand finishing with it. I recently first did a ceiling, about 12 X 15 with a lot of patching and had to spend all of about five minutes on sanding, with those being tougher areas where I had to overfill and light sand to flush. I had my lightweight vinyl ready for between coat t/ups but didn't have to use it. I'm on my fourth job with it now and sanding dust is minimal to none. Two coats of 45 and one skim of puke green and ready for paint. Real nice product.
