Hi Kenny,

I guess you're talking about a vaulted ceiling, depending upon the construction type this is almost automatic.

Two options, first easy one, if this is just a hairline crack, try some latex caulk. If it's wider than that, you'll have to rip off the old tape & redo. Post back if that isn't clear.

Could you elaborate more on the "stipple" texture. Describe it a little better. Thanks
