Painting Tips

Can be used previously painted walls & ceilings, baseboards, door & window frames, lacquered/varnished woodwork, metal knobs & hinges, plastic outlets, ceramic & natural stone tiles or countertops, glass & mirror, and many more.
Up to 14 days if exposed to direct sunlight & UV and up to 30 days if not, for best results remove tape after 24 hours.
We recommend only be applied to fully cured painted surfaces – that is paint that has been allowed to dry for over 14 days, preferably 30 days.
Residue left from Blue Dolphin Masking Tape can easily be removed using soap and water, or window cleaner.
Slowly pull the tape off at a 90 degree angle while the paint is wet or dry. However, if the paint is completely dry use a cutting device (like a razor blade) to cut the tape loose, and ensuring a nice clean edge.
Apply the tape in increments of 12″ (preferrably) as opposed to one long strip. If you apply tape in one long strip it stretches the tape, referred to as flagging, preventing the tape from laying flat and sticking to the surface. This results in paint bleeding under the tape leaving an unclean edge.
