No, it is for smoothing the dry mud and texture after wetting small area with a spray bottle, no messy sanding. Rinse it in 3 gallons water bucket when colored white.
Be aware, it comes off very quickly!

Be safe, Gary

Thanks GBR. I will try this over the pole sander sponge.

I am almost done with my second coat (still needs the hallway). For the third coat (finish coat), do I use "topping" compound or just continue to use "all purpose joint" compound. Couldn't I just use add water to all purpose joint compound?

Local home depot selling these toppings. Not really sure what "tinted" means. Green Dot sounds good?
