Cut a piece of a five gallon bucket lid to the correct profile. Sand
it smooth, and have at it. The first coat will go on a little rough,
as usual, and the succeeding coats will refine the finish.
You could screw on a handle if it makes it easier for you to hold.
The corner has a wood dowel as the corner piece, it is no empty, and
the drywall goes right up to it, so I don't think it will be much of a
problem. I'll probably go and make some kind of a mold. The kicker is
that the mantle is a nice wood mantle with square corners.. but it was
just easier to "do as your told" :)
I'm the man of the house, but when it comes to design, either I do it
all or I just throw up my hands.. so, how High can I reach!
DUDE !!! after you get the first coat of mud/wallboard compound on...
you will usually need a second or third coat or "topping" mud or regular
mud anyway ......
So weather you have uneven surface or cracks, it dont matter...
