drywall problem

I used paper tape on my ceiling joints and it bubbled in a number of places. What is the cause and what is the remedy? Thanks

You probably didn't have enough joint compound underneath the tape. This will leave air bubbles. If their are only a few small spots you can cut them open and mud them again. if their are alot of big air pockets you should start over. When I run my tape I add water to the joint compound and make it a little runny, and don't press to hard when running yor knife over the tape.

Trick that I found was to apply a narrow run of joint compound, then wet the tape before applying it to the joint. Then run a narrow spreader over the tape with just enough pressure to lay the tape flat and work out the bubbles.
