More of the room

Finally got over my stupid sinus-infection enough to get some more done.  I managed to get most of the joints sanded down, ultimately not going to waste much time on the rest of it.  Ultimately everything i’m finding pretty much just says to sand right at the end, but only knock down big imperfections in the mud by ‘scraping’ it down.

Been looking into some information about how to do the spray-on texture.  So many conflicting ways, I have a hopper gun, i think i’m just going to thin down topping compound for it.  All these places suggest using texture compound, but that doesn’t sound ‘strong’ enough for walls from what i understand.  All sorts of differing ideas about putting primer down first, adding paint to it etc, LAME idea.  I know all of the stuff i’ve seen has not been done this way.

So inevitably I’m just gonna end up playing around with it a bit.  Gonna go home tonight and crank out a ton more of all-purpose joint compound, so hopefully by Wed/Thurs I can start doing some topping on the joints so that I can get the texture sprayed by Friday.  I swore I would get started on painting this weekend, and plan on keeping that promise to myself.
