Skimming

Skimming

Skimming is a technique used in the drywall trade to cover larger areas of existing drywall, or plaster, with multiple coats of drywall mud. This is a technique that can be utilized for a number of different reasons: covering an area that was previously wallpapered, covering a sealing primer to allow new paint to be used, covering an unwanted texture, and covering a wall with major imperfections. Once an existing surface is skimmed with drywall mud that area can then be treated like any other finished drywall project; it can be done to a smooth finish or sprayed with a drywall texture.
