Greetings,

I am patching some plaster walls in a 1948 home with first generation drywall (basically regular drywall with a bunch of plaster on top). A handyman that I had do some projects recommended Structo-Lite. The problem is, it only comes in a 50 pound bag, and I won't even use 25% of it. I know you're supposed to mix the whole bag with like 12 quarts of water or something. I'm only going to be using very small amounts at a time. Any suggestions on how to get a good water-to product ratio when using small amounts?

Thanks,

V

You could also use DURA-BOND, any of the other dry mix products, as well as any of the small tubes of patching compounds available.

Each has a learning curve, IE drying, shrinkage and re-coat.

STRUCTO-LITE is the same way, just add enough water to create a workable paste.
