The container with the mass is opened and mixed. A wide spatula and a falcon are best for the job. A small amount of the prepared Sheetrock is applied to the falcon with a spatula. The putty must be applied in one layer to the surface and leveled in the process. It is permissible to apply several layers, while allowing it to dry out.
After the mixture is completely dry, proceed to grouting and sanding.
