Purple paper eater - sheetrock question"

Hi,
My purple board has lost some of the paper on it. Not all of the paper, but some. Also some on some greenboard as well. I alreayd have to compound some gaps/tape and corners in the area. Can you just use joint compound over these areas as well, or is there a better way? i have included a picture of several areas.

Answer; cut out layers that are frilly as much as possible... if you do not go down to the gypsum (not sure what to coat that with) then coat it with a Primer Sealer. Some said Oil Base.... I used a water base like Bulls eye or Gardz or Kilz



Shop Bulls Eye 1-Gallon Interior Latex Primer at Lowes.com

Well, I hope anyway.

To Give you a simple answer Yes

To Give you a simple answer Yes while your doing the taping go over the affected areas then after the joint compound drys give it a light sand and use a drywall primer to seal it. Good Luck and let me know how it turns out***********************

Any exposed gypsum should be coated with an oil base primer or Zinnser's Gardz. That prevents the moisture in latex paint/primer or in the j/c from trying to dissolve the gypsum. It's always best to trim the edges of the loose paper with a utility knife, if you just try to pull off the loose paper - a lot of it will come off
