    Hi All
    I'm about to put up a very small amount of plasterboard (tapered edge). Some onto studwork, others onto brick. I am wondering which of the following is the better way of filling the joint:

    1) Fill joint, then add tape, then plaster over:

    or
    2) Tape, then plaster over:


    Thanks for any comments.

    Either is acceptable, but with papered tape you can get air bubbles on dry spots, so the easiest method would be self adhesive nylon tape and then fill out.
