When mudding drywall, remove bumps after second coat of joint compound. Smooth a second coat of drywall mudding with tips in this free video on home remodeling from a professional building contractor.
We've gone ahead and put our second coat over the drywall. Smoothed it out and it is dry now. So we are going to go ahead and do the same thing that we did on the first coat and knock down all the bumps that will get in the way of our last coat. So like right here is a little place right here so we'll take it right down to nice and smooth. I knocked that down a little to much but that is OK we will just fill it back up. I got a lot of mud on this coat that we did last time. I think I went a little to deep on that one. That was bad. Sometimes it does that. Sometimes the mud will ball up on you. Probably because I didn't mix it enough but we can still fix that. I'm probably going to have to put another coat on that later. In the meantime let's get going on this.
