View Full Version : Coving coombed ceilings

I've seen it done but never tried it myself and wondered if any of you guys have.
Do you put the cove on the coombed edge first then work round the flat and scribe to match up?

Never tried it Matt nor have I seen it done. Personally I think it would look hideous, did it look ok when you seen it ? Is it a customer's preference, or are the coombs all to pot?

I've done it but it looks pants. Mitre the joints from slope to flat.

It was s shaped gyproc 135 cove and it matched up and I think it looked alright, but probably too much hassle.
I might do as tony says and mitre it into the slope, if i can get the angle!!
