I have recently hung drywall on a ceiling in my kitchen and being as I am not the patient type was not very careful mudding it. how can I get rid of the bubbles that formed now that the mud is dry?

Ahh.. the agony that is bubbling mud..
If your bubbling is small, and does not involve the tape at all, you can simply scrape off the bubbles, sand till its mostly smooth, and put on a top coat (carefully this time). If your tape has "bubbled" down or sagged down, you'll probably need to pull it off and re-do the joint.

Good Luck!

Bubbles in sheetrock tape? I NEVER have bubbles in my tape joints. But then, I haven't used paper tape in 15 years!! My fiberglass mesh tape NEVER bubbles.
