I mudded a wall yesterday that was extra thick due to it being out of plumb. Plus, the back wall wasn't parallel with the sheetrock on the outside of the shower. So the left stick had more mud behind it than the right stick. I should have checked for that ahead of time, I could have made my scratch thicker on the left side. With about 1 inch of mud behind the left stick, I had to let it set about 45 minutes before I could put pressure on it with the straight edge. I spent that time filling in the middle area and letting it firm up a little before adding more mud. I sprayed the scratch coat with my garden sprayer and got it a little too wet. That didn't help.
