How to fill Durock board outside corner joints


Hi,

I am remodeling my bathroom. After I attach Durock Cement Boards to studs and before tiling walls I will fill straight and inside corner joints with latex-fortified mortar and alkaliresistant, fiberglass meshjoint tape. But I am not sure how to fill outside corner joints. Do I need to use the same approach or use metal corners instead of mesh tape?

Thanks.
