Hi

I am installing plasterboard that has a tapered edge. Do I put scrim tape on first, pushing into the taper or apply filler first to bring the taper level up, then tape?

Thanks

The scrim tape is full of holes already so you can fill after, that's what we did. We did fill one corner gap that was particularly big first before the tape, then another couple of layers.
