Mud also known as Dry Wall Compound


There are many wonderful finishes that you can achieve with dry wall compound.

One of my favorite finishes is a 3-dimensional Stone Wall



To a box of mud (dry wall compound) add 12 large cups of builders sand (35 grit)

Mix well

Apply to wall with trowel in broad strokes. While still wet, dip a 3 foot long two by four into water. Score stone outlines into wet mud with two by four on edge. For verticals use smaller two by four.

Let dry
Dilute taupe or sandstone colored water based paint (6 to 1), brush onto entire surface.

Paint ordinary kitchen sponge with several colors of water based paint (do not dip sponge into paint)

Lightly press sponge onto each stone block in colors which you might find in nature.

P. S. For inside walls only
