I am having some dramas with applying my paper tape joints on my ceiling....
The paper is not "delaminating" or bubbling excessivly, but i am still worried that it has not adhered correctly.
I put down my nice thick coat of mud, as per rods video on utube, I am using gyprock basecoat 45. i then bed in the tape and squeezed out the excess (it was definatly not dry)
From there we have applied another skim coat over the tape and the joint is flush
Now what has me worried is we had a couple of bubbles, i cut them out no problems there, but noticed the rest of the tape was very poorly stuck, i think i could probobally rip the whole strip out with minimal effort.
My question is, is this normal? will it settle in or should it be stuck like sh*t to a blanket?
thanks for your time!
