How to put mud on outside corner for second coating?
I have a question regarding muding on outside corner for second coating:
I know we need to run a 10" towel along the edge of a outside corner for second coating....
my question is:
Do I put the mud on the outside corner a portion at a time by a 5" mud knife and then run the long edge towel down a portion at a length,
or I put the mud on the outside corner for the full length with the 5" mud knife for a width of 8 to 10", then run the long edge towel down for the full length.
which way is better or the only way to do it... last night I did use the first way, and feel it is not too efficient...
I use the larger knife to apply the mud then smooth it out with the same knife. Unless my arm is beat from the days work then I sometimes cheat and use a smaller knife to apply. I think whatever floats your boat is the way to go.
Thanks for the reply, but I probably didn't explain myself clear enough, I was asking should I apply mud for the whole length of corner or a bit at a time, before sweeping the long edge knife,
anyhow, I found out from the weekend experience, it should be apply to whole length or longest length you can sweep, then sweep it all with one stroke...
