How do you properly apply a mud "skim coat"

Posted by jimt on March 15th, 2000 07:20 AM

I've prepared my damaged drywall and am ready to apply several skim coats to try to get that smooth surface prior to primer/sealing. I have patched alot of drywall, but I'm obviously not a mud pro, so are there any tips to applying thin layers of compound and what would you sand after every layer? Trying not to be a "pain", but also trying to do this right. Thanks, folks.
