The Best Tape Techiques

Before you grab your Purdy paint brush and you red solo cup....

Painting tape is required!  Unless, you have a steady hand and lots of painting experience...you can save time by free handing your straight lines...for the rest of us...there is the magic of painters' tape..

  • Tape is great for making crisp clean edges along molding, doors and windows and for painting stripes.
  • To make sure paint doesn't bleed press tape on the wall really firmly - scrape along the edge with your thumbnail or an old credit card after you press it down with your finger.
  • Also use tape to cover hardware such as door hinges or lock plates.  Remove switch plates complete but tape over switches
  • Wait for paint to dry all the way, then remove tape very slowly.
