How to Paint Walls : Masking Baseboards to Paint Walls


This is Dan and today I’m doing a demonstration
for expertvillage.com. We are still continuing to mask our project. So now we are going to
discuss masking off the base boards and the casing. We are going to use blue tape for
this because usually the base and case have just had a fresh coat on it. So what we do
is we want to keep it in one solid piece the entire way. We are going to catch it right
on that lip to keep it flip it on that lip. Keep it from touching that wall and keep covering
the base. You are going to want to ensure proper stick on the tape by applying enough
to be sure to seal it down. You are just going to continue through the whole length of the
wall and move forward. Now if you get it up on the wall you can just pull it up and readjust
where it is going by moving the tape or by pushing it with your fingers. Once you have the fixed you want to go ahead
and push the tape down the entire length of your wall. Same with your casing you just
want to get into your line
and keep a nice straight line for your tape. The less pieces of tape that you use the more
likely more to have the better product with less touch up. Meaning try to use one piece
of tape to the whole side.
