First, use something that you can find to get rid of all the loose cement in the crack. Then use a paintbrush to brush of the fine particles. Apply a layer if Joint Tape evenly along the crack. Finally use the scrapper to apply the Compound evenly over the tape. Wait for a day or two before smoothing the dried compound with sandpaper. Then paint.
