2. Fill the space between panels with DAP® Lightweight Wallboard Joint Compound.
3. Center wallboard joint tape over joint and press into fresh compound with a 5” application knife.
4. Remove excess and cover embedded tape with a thin layer of compound.
5. Apply compound to all nailheads and spread smooth with long strokes parallel to joint.
6. After compound dries, smooth uneven areas with a damp sponge.
7. Apply a second coat of joint compound with a 10” knife along joints and over nailheads, smoothing out
2” beyond first coat. Smooth uneven areas with damp sponge again after the compound has dried.
8. If necessary, apply a thin finish coat of compound over joints, smoothing out 2” beyond second coat.
9. To finish inside corners , apply joint compound to both sides of corner, fold tape along center crease

compound over tape. After compound has dried, smooth uneven areas with a damp sponge and apply a
second coat of compound over one side only. Let dry and then cover the other side.

panel surface 4” to 6”. Allow compound to dry and smooth uneven areas with a damp sponge. Apply 2
more coats in same manner.

paint brush or roller. If desired, texture surface immediately using paint rollers, a sponge, stiff bristled
brush or even crumpled paper, depending on desired effect. Allow compound to dry thoroughly before
decorating or painting.
