QUESTION: How do you get bubbles out of corner round paper when you have put on a few coats of mud?

ANSWER: I had this happen a long time ago when I used a paper-covered outside corner bead. If this just consists of a few bubbles here and there, just cut them out with a razor knife and coat over the top. You can never get those bubbles to flatten down otherwise. If it involves most of the corner, you should probably sand/scrape off the mud, pull the corner off, and then place the full-metal corner on. The sales people like to push the paper-edged drywall corner beads - I don't care for them. If the corner is not perfectly square, you get an improper seal and bubbling because the metal part pulls the paper away from the wall.

Go to the Outside Corners page of this site for steps on using the all-metal corner bead. This stuff is easy to use and makes your wall and corner stronger than it was.
