Creating the Venetian Plaster Look with Joint Compound/Mud
Asked Apr 23, 2008, 09:31 AM
I've noticed one problem when using mud to create the venetian plaster look; it shrinks as it dries, which creates very small/narrow cracks where walls meet and where the ceiling and walls meet. I know it's normal for the mud to shrink, but I'm curious how people go about taking care of the small cracks mentioned above. I assume a little extra mud will be added in the end to fill the cracks. Does that sound right?
