My dad's company did the drywall in Joan Krocs brand new home in Del Mar. Every corner had inside bullnose. Those weren't invented then. We all used sanding discs. Came out looking nice.

It's rare. Using hot mud, (the old hot mud, dried very hard) and a rubber disc. We called them a rubber ducky for whatever reason.

Filled with hot mud and finished with either all purpose or topping. The trick was even pressure in each corner for a consistent radius. That's why one guy did a whole room. No two people in the same room. Kinda the way we orchestrated skip trowel. No two people in the same room.

I use it to get the mud out of my a$$ crack after finishing inside corners.

Beforehand, the room was dimly lit and only had the recessed lights as shown in the photo, but we went and put a giant chandelier in there where the light bounces all over the place. You now see all the discrepancies in the tape. I have to repair/repaint on my dime unfortunately. I want to make it right, but it is quickly turning into a nightmare as I already took down scaffolding and floor covering. Thatís why I was hoping to just veneer the new tape with a rigid tape so I can possibly do it off of a 16í A frame.
I am failing to see how it's your responsibility to do the repairs on your dime when you only hung a chandelier??

Re-read the OP. They worked on the tape job as well as hanging a chandelier. The chandelier just makes the irregularities more visible.

Ok in that case with the home owner already having an eye on the issues it might not be any easy fix with wavy sheetrock giving you fits. Rigid tape is what I would use but with wavy sheetrock the mud would have to be spread out a ways to fad away the waviness or the HO will be complaining about that next.
