    Arrow good evening all you JEDI drywallers,and greetings From France


    Hi you guys I'm new to the forum and like all newbies I arrive with a little problem!

    I hope someone can help me, I have started a new drywall project, I have arrived to do the drywall joints on a previous project surprisingly well, but this one I am not sure how to tackle, I have already done my frame and drywall, but the joints between the wall and ceiling are a little tricky as the ceiling is papered and I don't know if I can tape to the paper or do I need to remove a strip of paper from around the room the width of the jointing tape its a type of fiberglass lining paper as the ceiling must have been not great, I'm just worried if I start cutting the lining paper I will open a can of worms or I the taping compound will hold on the paper
    If someone could give me some advice I would be really appreciated
    John

    I think I would joint up to the ceiling nice and tight the finish with a bead of chalk to seal and stay of the finished ceiling all together.
