- Complies with EN 13963, type T
- Mix some powdered joint compound with water, or use the pre-mixed variety.
- Use a drywall blade to spread a row of Joint Compound along an entire seam, either from top to bottom or from left to right. The width of this row should be slightly larger than the width of the tape. It doesn't matter if you spread too much compound, but don't spread too little and leave voids along the seam.
- Roll out enough tape to completely cover the seam, and tear or cut it off of the roll. Lay the tape on top of the seam, and let it stick to the compound.
- Use the edge of the drywall blade to scrape along the surface of the tape, squeezing Joint Compound out from underneath and flattening the tape against the wall. Deposit the excess Joint Compound back onto your tray as you go. When you are finished, the tape should be flat against the wall, and there should be no bubbles. Lift the tape from the wall at places you see bubbles, add a little more mud underneath, and then scrape the tape flat.
- Let the joint compound dry overnight, and apply two or three coats of joint compound on top to feather the seam into the wall.
