Another spackle question

2422 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  bjbatlanta
I am not good at spackling so I will do a little, sand it then do a little more until it looks right.
I have good, although slow results doing this but it works... until now. For some reason, the first spackle is different from the second coat so that when I'm sanding, the first will leave weird ridges that will not blend with the second.
Any ideas why? Any suggestions on how to fix it?
Thanks in advance.

I'm not quite following either, but I never have liked and don't use the lightweight compounds....
Or add a bit of latex paint to your compound for contrast and try the picture again....
