Only had 4 small walls in a high hallway and every one went off different and some went off diff top/bottom due to height (no air movement at top). By time one oclock ticked I saw sense and abandoned the idea of getting another set on. Finished early...

And...(wtf) patch on one wall bubbled up like I'd dropped rice crispies in the mix. No bloody idea why as everything was prepped the same and using same mix.

At least I had the sense to back off this time. Usually I keep going and end up trowelling in the dark.
