What is the correct way to apply and remove painter's tape?

Well, if you want to know what is the correct way to apply and remove duct tape? Below are some steps on how to place the masking tape, see how:
  1. Before using masking tape to cover paint, clean the surface it is protecting, such as printed markings on the wall.
  2. Apply caulking with a little spackle, water and a brush, between the tape and the ceiling, as close to the edge of the wall as possible.
  3. Remove excess spackle with a semi-wet sponge.
  4. Unroll the ribbon into long strips. The less seams, the less paint will leak behind the tape.
  5. Smooth over the tape with a putty knife to prevent air leakage, making sure it seals well between the ceiling and wall. This prevents air bubbles and wrinkles.

Painting by a professional

Pro Tip: Use a putty knife to smooth painter's tape or masking tape into place, angling it to apply pressure to the edges of the tape and create a tight seal that will further prevent potential leaks. Oh! And don't forget to apply the spackle, a painter's secret, right?

Remove the masking tape about an hour after painting it, as when it is dry to the touch it is ready to be removed from the wall. If the ink is being pulled by the tape, tap the ink. If it's still sticky, wait until it hardens and dries before removing the tape.

Se a tinta parecer completamente seca, use uma espátula para marcar a borda da fita e quebrar o selo. Descasque a fita em um ângulo de 45 graus em relação à parede; isso ajudará a manter as linhas suaves e uniformes.

But be careful! If painting with satin or semi-gloss paint, these tips will help, however, drying is faster and the tape should be removed from the surface as soon as possible. This is because washable paint forms a protective film on the wall that prevents dirt from accumulating; therefore, the faster you remove the masking tape, the less likely you are to pull off paint chips.

Masking tape, can I use it to paint stripes on the wall?

If you want to see expensive striped wallpaper without spending money? Try this simple trick using painter's tape on the wall to create stripes.

  1. First, decide how long you want the sash to be, then use a pencil to mark the measurement on the wall to measure the sash. 
  2. Use a ruler, contrast level or laser level to draw stripes from floor to ceiling, horizontally or vertically, or however you like!
  3. Check the different heights on the wall to ensure the strips are the same width from top to bottom. 
  4. Repaint as needed until they line up correctly.
Now that you've drawn the stripes, tape the outside of each line.
Para uma linha mais nítida, aplique uma cor de base (branco) na borda da alça e, quando secar, aplique uma segunda cor sobre ela. Uma sobreposição de cor de base adicional selará as bordas da fita, protegendo a cor final e também evitar que as listras saiam desbotadas.

When the first coat of finish color dries, add another coat for optimal color and coverage.

If you're ready for a new paint job, use the end of the masking tape to give everything you paint a professional finish!

And remember, always wear personal protective equipment before getting your hands in putty or paint.
