Masking Tape Mega Thread

#1

Frog tape green takes the paint off coving I find. Not keen on yellow as it is too low tack. Tried Duck, Scotch. Nothing is giving me the non paint removing satisfaction I require.

(Just came in here to post a thread about who has gone the longest without a mammal (non-human) seeing their genitals and found this forgotten in my drafts)

Don’t worry too much about this one.

I’ve never succesfully used any masking tape in a painting scenario - always end up with paint getting under the tape, or tape removing paint when it’s pulled off

have used it to get a nice straight line when applying silicone sealant though

Get some 3M masking tape. Fucking excellent stuff. Used it for all our skirting boards recently and it was perfect.

Or, maybe, your technique is shit.

Hey, that’s not just my technique that you are slagging off but that of my wife too.

If you’re not using gorilla tape you’re probably a dickhead

use yellow. I’m in the middle of decorating. make sure you give it a good press along the paint side and it’ll stay up and avoid paint bleeding under. remove it when the paint it still wet.

It’s brave to confess you can’t use frog tape properly. Good on you!

Use Duck Tape a lot at work. Makes a real gummy mess of your scissors. How are you actually supposed to cut it?

Used to drive an engineer friend of mine nuts when you’d call if Duct Tape

“IT’S NOT FOR DUCTS, IT’S A BRAND NAME!”

I just tear it. I have been using a gold version of the tape recently and I love it.
