    Use paper tape on square edge and internals.
    Apply a paper tape with promix and scrape off and allow to dry then 2 coat and feather out. Coat out internals again and sand off next day.
    Use fast set (joint filler or easyfill) with paper or fibre on tapered edge to fill out then 2 coat as usual.

    If it's only a small job, i'd use Easifill for the lot and get it taped up in one visit, then sand down next time. Normal Easifill has a 90 minute set and is nice to use. Promix Lite is a very soft material and would probably liven up if tiled over.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I've always been under the impression that you had to joint up moisture board otherwise you will remove the moisture repellent qualities?
