Default Lightweight Clumps

I like to use light weight mud to fill holes and the like, but I noticed that it can get clumpy, making streaks while passing with my 6 inch knife, is there any way to remedy this? I have added water and stirred it but it still streaks. Thanks

Assuming your using 5's of mud the first thing I'd do is thin it considerably to what they package it at and also make sure the sides of your bucket and lid are staying clean this will keep dried chunks outta the good stuff

do you have crackshot over there? I understand DAP is american right.
next time you pick up a large tub. feel the weight of the other brand's tubs.
its super heavy, sticky and easy to sand.

if your getting clumps. do you put your unused product back in the stock tub? if u dont keep it all together it will partially dry out and make lumps
