Step1. Cut the tape

Cut the tape to length and fold in half lengthways. Apply the first coat of compound with a 100mm broad knife.
TIP The crease stiffens the tape and helps keep the corner straight.

Step 2. Position tape

Position the tape near the ceiling, lightly pulling the knife down to bed the tape in the compound. Apply two more coats 150mm either side of the joint, feathering the edges.
