Installation

Installation

  • Run your taping knife over the surface of the drywall and remove any high spots. If the knife hits a screw head, set the screw a little deeper. Use a drywall rasp to clean up edges, if needed.
  • Measure wall height and subtract 1/2”. Measure and cut Huge using a scissors or utility knife.
  • Fold Huge in half at center crease with print size facing each other. For outside corners, fold more than the desired angle with print side facing wall. For inside corners, fold less than desired angle with print side facing out.
  • Most professionals prefer to cut the ends of Huge at a 45º angle.
  • Properly mix all-purpose compound per manufacturer’s directions. If applying Huge over painted surfaces, add Strait-Flex’s Super-Bond to enhance bondability.
  • With a 4” or 5” taping knife, apply a smooth, liberal coat of compound to corner.
  • Press Huge into the wet compound. Adjust if necessary to create a straight line.
  • Wipe down tight with taping knife using a little additional pressure on the outer edges of Huge.
  • Immediately apply a light skim coat of compound over surface of Huge. Wipe down tight and smooth. Let dry completely over several hours or overnight.
  • Use taping knife to detect and remove any high spots or dried clumps of compound.
  • With a 6” or 8” taping knife, apply your final coat of compound feathering the compound beyond previous coat. For inside corners, a very light coat of compound is all that’s needed. Lightweight compound used in this step makes sanding much easier. Let dry completely over several hours or overnight.
  • Sand lightly with 120 grit sandpaper. Huge will not fuzz-up like paper or mesh tapes
