    When you make your mix a little too watery you can end up with bubbles… Best solution is to mix the gypsum + water as you would making bread dough… make just enough water for a thick hear-thy mud that is also soft and pliable enough to apply in thin layers…
    Make sure that when you apply the mud that you do not trap any air as to these will break trough as bubbles when the mud is drying up.

    Also Too thin a layer will also dry with ‘puck marks/ bubble holes since the material does shrink a little bit during its drying process.

    Hope this helped =)

    Those little bubbles are called puck/pock holes.If your mud isn’t mixed just right this will happen especially when put on thick.You can buy a product at Menard’s called no- pock.ix it up with your mud and it makes your mud more workable/slippery and you wont end up with pock holes.You can also add regular dish soap to your mud and you’ll get the exact same effect and alot cheaper.After sanding run a damp sponge over your work and that will pull the dust out so you can see the pock holes,then you can hit hem again.You don’t want to see them popping up when your painting. Good Luck

    drywall mud is like paint, you have to stir it up well before using it. also if it was ever frozen then it,s junk.
