The use of skim coating using plastering tools, drywall tape sealer, and troweled joint compound on gib panels is a popular building technique for painted wall and ceiling surfaces. Though joint compounds are used for bedding tape and the initial layers overtop, topping compound is better used for the finish layer(s) to level and sand more uniformly. Both need thinning until they can be used. Applying and sanding compound is a messy job, and finished surfaces like floors and air handling ducts must be protected.
