K,

We only coat one side of the corner at a time. Then, after these dry, we go back and coat the remaining side.
Where 3 corners intersect, we make it a point to coat the opposite side of each corner, so that they aren't meeting eachother....

Hope you can understand this...

I understand your part of coat one surface at a time... I did that for all the inside corners... but still when it come to the 3 walls corner... the knife have hard time reaching it.... may be that is what professional come to place, where it requires skill and patient....

Naw. Not as tricky as the meeting of 3 curved corners.

Nor as tricky as an inside corner that comes together at 22.5 degrees and is 10' long and has to look straight!
