Thanks for the tutorial! I have been trying to figure out how to get my
lines crisp and straight but all the websites I looked at made it seem so
complicated. Great video! I love how you showed the contrast between the
pretty and ugly.(:
this is clever – basically it fills up all the crevices the tape can’t
cover initially. So, by filling it up and sealing it off with the original
paint color the new paint wont.
the only problem this brings is when u have a really straight proper wall u
will see a difference in thickness if u just cover only the tape with the
original color having been a pro. painter in the past the better way to do
it is with painters(acryl) sealant in a tube which just like silicone
sealant for kitchens you can apply it very thin on the edge of the tape it
takes some time to perfect this skill but u can use a bucket of water with
a moist spunge and clean of the bits still on the tape when still wet
you’ll need to do so to not pull it off when taking the tape of the wall
when dry paint it and u have a perfect line without having a thicker layer
from putting extra paint like that plus you’ll save money because the
sealant costs less than a bucket of paint etc etc even though this way in
the video is well thought up by some amature it isnt the best way as most
paints also take from 2hours to 24hours to fully dry and most sealants will
be dry within 15min
Good idea, but you’re going to see those lines you painted with the
original wall color, even after laying on the new color.
It may be faint, but you’ll see them.
It sounds like a good idea, but when i tried it, it made a mess. The
original color seeped under the tape (as expected). I then had to let
everything dry before putting on the new color. The original color dried to
both the wall and the tape, so after I painted the new color and pulled the
tape off, the tape pulled the paint under the tape off the wall. I ended up
with divots and bare patches, some of them down to plaster. Points for
creativity, but I don’t recommend the method.
