Tape And Bed
I also put on the bare minimum of compound for each layer so there is barely little sanding.
Tape and bed. Prepare the sheetrock tape for installation. Sticky on one side and doesn t need a bed of compound like paper tape does. If you start in the corner and work toward the middle of the room the tape will pull loose. Start in the middle and work towards the corners until you have the ends embedded in the compound.
How to tape and finish drywall to tape joints you can use either mesh or paper tape. Fold a length of tape in half and press its fold into the corner. If you painted a wall without tape and bedding you would be able to see the line where the drywall meets. Taping and floating drywall is the process of solidifying the joint between 2 pieces of drywall so that the plaster and paint that goes on top of it doesn t crack later on.
This technique is also used in corners to achieve a smooth appearance. Spread a thin layer of mud into a corner joint with a trowel. Apply a layer of the compound using a 6 inch knife. Taping and bedding drywall requires very little time but it is necessary in order to have a smooth connection from one piece of drywall to another.
When taping a wall seam in a room with a high ceiling it is fine to cut 2 sections of tape if that will make the task more manageable. I prefer fiberglass mesh tape over paper tape. Most of the time it s smooth enough that i just go over with a damp sponge to give a final smooth finish. Smooth the tape pull the putty knife along the tape embedding it in the compound.
Using the tape measure determine the length of the seam between the 2 sheetrock sections and then cut the correct length of tape with the cleaned drywall knife. Run corner trowel down middle of corner to press tape into mud and work out excess mud.
