Tips on how to place sheetrock in this corner


I removed a drop in tub as part of bathroom remodel and now need to install drywall (green board) to cover where the tub surround was so it will meet up smoothly with the existing drywall.
The photo shows the part of the wall that I'm seeking advice about where there is a 90+ inside angle that is finished with a curved angle.

Questions: 1.Any special tips on how I show install the two pieces of board that will form the inside angle?
2. How shall I proceed to do the taping and mudding of this angle so it matches the board above?

Thanks.

It is hard to tell from pic but if this is the shape this is how I would do it. Can't tell if there is anything to attach it to from pic but if there isn't you will have to put something.

Thanks for reply.

There are studs to attach the board to.

Questions
  1. What do the blocks shown in your sketch represent?
  2. Should I just butt the two pieces of board together?
  3. Is there a bead product that will make duplicating the curved angle in the existing drywall easy when I tape and mud?

The blocks are studs or nailer to attach sheetrock to. I would do one side then the other to tape. Maybe cut something out of plastic like old bucket to finish it.

I take it that the plastic or spoon is used to shape the mud into the desire shape to match the existing drywall?

Correct?

I would have thought there was a bead I could buy in this shape? No?

Thanks.

Don't listen to Ronto.....

I've tried it with a Teqilla bottle.... never even got to mixing the mud.

Use straight flex tape you can get it in different widths it will make it a straight crisp corner.Then you can just use a straight tapping knife instead of a spoon,bottle, beer can that others are talking about, that's funny
