it's just like everything else. it's a learned skill, you begin knowing the basics, you pick up tips from those with more experience, you learn from mistakes made. the simple 4" brush for inside corners cut my inside corner time by at least 1/3, plus sanding time cut 1/2.

a new team of 3 men hanging 12' sheets in a house will beat each other to death, after 3 years together, won't even break a sweat? the more you do, the better you get and easier.

it's only art, if it looks good when done I've never had a problem using USG green lid, other than my own mistakes! it's simply a process you learn for yourself that works for you. consistency,technique, and sequence.

best of luck
as always, just my thoughts
good luck....coupe/Larry
take what helps? ignore the rest.
