Air bubbles under tape.

Air bubbles under tape.

I just put the inside corner beads on. (I used the metal with paper tape). When it dried I noticed I have a couple of air bubbles where I assume I did not get enough mud. Any advice on how to fix this situation?

Thanks, Jeff

If the bubbles are small - say less than a couple of inches in length - I just cut them out carefully with a razor blade and mud over them. If they're large enough to compromise the corner - cut them out and patch them with another piece of tape.

Thanks!

Thanks Zster,

I am very happy with your solution. I really don't see this compromising the corner at all and yes they are probably less than an inch to an inch and a half. I was afraid the answer was going to be tear down wall and start the process over.
If I can get this done by 9:00 AM the first beer is on me.
Thanks again
Jeff

inside corner beads? I think what you mean is you just put the TAPE on the inside corners (hence the bubbles).

The cornerbead goes on the outside corners.
