Professional Coating Techniques

STEP 4: Repeat The Same Procedure on Other Side

Spread on mud (A little past half way down)

   

Feather in outside edge, pull down the center 

 

Clean off edge, Now you should have the top of 1 stick of corner bead coated.

 

STEP 5: Coat Bottom Side

It's pretty much the same thing all over again. Spread it on, Feather in the outside edges, Then pull the knife up the center using firm even pressure, Clean off the edge.  Where the bottom meets the top you will get 1 little ripple line (See Picture). This is called a lap mark or fish tail. Before you 2nd coat, you will have to scrape that off or sand it. If you get good at coating bead, this will be about all the sanding your corners will need.
