Question Skip Troweling a Ceiling

Well, I have had it for trying to spray texture a newly remodeled bed and bath. It either comes out too wet or cloggs the hopper gun, so I am seeking councel on skip troweling the entire ceilings. According to the joint compound bucket, it says, "Do not to overthin with water." This is a good thing to know, but they don't give you a mixing ratio. Does anyone know a mixing ratio or what the consistancy is supposed to be for proper adherement?

For skip trowel texture you really don't have to thin the mud at all. It's easier on the arms if you do but it's up to you. Add water and mix until it's like peanut butter. Any looser than that and it will fall off your hawk and hit you in the face.
