Help needed with skimming/patching

14 years ago

I finally removed the popcorn finish from the ceiling in my first floor bathroom, but need help on exactly what to do next. All the posts I've read say to "patch" any nicks in the drywall, and to apply a skim coat to even out the ceiling. This is the first time I've ever done this, so please bear with me: What material do I use to patch any of the small nick marks I made in the tape, and what do you buy to mix a skim coat? Also, am I just filling in the parts where the popcorn coating was completely removed from the drywall (over the tape/seam lines there is still some white compound left)? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
