I've seen and heard of people using joint compound and a putty knife to give interior walls a type of stucco effect. But I think it's generally been done in remodeling pre-finished painted walls. Basically, from what I've been told, you take a glob of mud, splack it on the wall and make it as smooth or messy as you want depending on the lok you're going for. Other people use a roller or mop in place of the knife. Does anybody have epxerience with this to know how quick and easy it is.
Because I'm dreading the joint work, and because I would like to do this stucco look if I can find specifics on the process, I'm curious as to if I'm going to do this look, do I still need to finish my joints ahead of time or will this eliminate the need for taping and mudding?
