What's your preferences curve all the internal angle/creases or try and leave them all straight!

Thoughts?

If its a re-skim and the angle is already rounded leave it as is. My preference would be straight.

on an orangery ceiling we find that the angles are to tight to scroll.
skim alternatives then we hold up a length of plasterboard stop bead against the internal and cut a dead straight line. we use the same method for bay windows.

no. we only hold the bead in place , after the second alternative angle is complete. then run the edge of a small tool down the line. it just cuts the plaster slightly it gives you a nice sharpe line.

Curves easier by far. If customer wants straight they get straight but charged more too if it's all pissed to begin with

Curved If I do straight lines my head starts over thinking and I’ll end up smashing the ceiling down.
