I am having trouble putting rock around the arched windows I installed. They (two of them) are 2 ft wide with a full radius top. I put 45 degree knees in the rough opening. I am convinced sheetrock won't bend that tight of a radius, or can it?
I would appreciate any advice or options. I assume since they sell window this shape that there is a way to sheetrock them in.

I would try a double layer of 1/4 inch drywall. You should wet the drywall on the front and back and let it soak in a bit.Do not soak the sheet down to much, it will fall apart.I used a flex drywall on a 2 ft. radius which is very tight to even bend 1/4 inch drywall around, it worked great! I purchased it at a drywall supply house. Home Depot will not have this product.
