How do you keep drywall mud from shrinking?
The drywall mud has to dry completely between coats, which happens via different processes depending on the type of compound used. In the most common ready mixed joint compound, as the water evaporates from the compound, the solid particles left behind take up less space, causing the compound over the area as a whole to shrink.
