I have a couple of corners to do in a room I bought corner beads from the
Borg that are metal laminated to paper. How do I use them? Do I have to
screw them on first or just apply mud and stick them on? Thx.
I recently used the metal/paper units for inside corners. For
the outside corners I used the white plastic corner bead. I
liked this stuff because when the paint chips, and it will, it
leaves white instead of dark gray which will not be a visible.
I put one outside corner on. I buttered the corner with mud/filler then
stuck the corner on. Then used the 6" blade to squee-gee the bead so that it
flattened out a bit. The only problem I have noticed is that in some places
the paper warps and waves a bit. Not sure if maybe I didn't have enough/too
much mud under the bead.
