Re: Mixing drywall mud with Latex paint
A cool-looking technique that I've seen is to first paint the ceiling with a colored base coat, then apply a knockdown texture. The texture is white, but the base coat shows through between the texture globs.
I can't say that I've ever seen colored mud. Not saying it can't be done, but mixing paint with the mud seems like a recipe for unintended consequences. More reasonable would be to put pigments into the mud or texture.
