Patching outside corner of wall

Posted by bedelia (My Page) on

I'm repainting the kitchen, and the paint has chipped off (or maybe it got bumped too many times) on an outside corner of a wall. The bare metal shows through and I was wondering how to repair it. Would spackle do the job, or do I need something heavier?

Thanks for any advice.

RE: Patching outside corner of wall

Spackle will be fine, EasySand for first coat because it dries rock hard, and then something light weight for second coat like Plus 3. Both products are made by Sheetrock. Stay away from Red Devil. Often when patching outside corners, you may have to lay the mud on heavy and then when sanding you can sculpt it to a fine edge that matches the rest of the corner.
