Im looking forward to trying this fibafuse stuff where can u find it is it a drywall finishing product or something you discovered and improvise with? I take a bit of pride in my method for doing butt joints but I will still get an occasional crack (hairline) but its rare I think some butt joints will crack no matter what you do if there placed in a high stress area by the hangers. I
"V" out my buts with a razor and prefill with 20 before I tape. I then tape and for 1st coat and 2nd coat I split the tape with a 10" blade for 1st and 12" for 2nd coat the only mud I put over the tape is with a 3rd skim coat and my butts are consistantly flat enough to put a 4ft straight edge with no rocking of the straight edge. I always find that butts are the 1st thing to show humps so Im OCD about getting them flat and flush but Im always looking for new tricks.

Hey Ice, do you notice more bubbling / poc marks when going over the heavy glued areas? The reason I ask is cause when I use a heavy dose of Mud Max to do some patches my second coat always bubbles up, especially where the glue mix was used. Does the spray glue cause this too?

I made a California patch with fiberfuse as a test and 10 mins after I put it on the wall I did my first coat of mud and it looked good . this is how i am going to do my patch work now ...why make hotmud when thin coats dry fast and with a heat gun it is so much faster
patch hole
1 take a 6x6 scrap drywall over hole
2 trace it over the hole
3 glue a 8x8 fiberfuse over 6x6
4 cut out the trace wall
5 spray wall and back of the fibafuse and stick to wall
6 spray the patch and wipe tight
7 clean knife ASAP
8 10 mins put your first skim coat on
9 heat it up if needed
10 scrap if needed and 2nd coat (skim)
you dont need heavy coats because its tight and smooth
