Mixing Drywall Joint Compound

One of the biggest mistakes, made by the home handyman, when using drywall joint compound is that they do not mix the product thoroughly. It is next to impossible to mix a large pail of drywall compound without the use of a power mixer or mixer mounted in an electric drill.

Taking out small portions from a large container and mixing those individually will not work. Joint compound separates after sitting in the pail in a few days. It is important, in order to have a workable product, that you will be able to feather out, is to make sure that the compound is emulsified, that it is evenly mixed throughout.
