    My biggest problem with taping trim is the curves.. thanks for posting this!

    Perhaps you’ll cover this in an article to follow, but do you stick with a good quality standard masking tape or do you ever use blue or green painters tape?

      Hi Kevin,

      I have used a lot of different types, brands, etc. Until about 1-2 years ago I was using mainly the blue painters tape for delicate surfaces because it was malleable and had a nice edge. However, I started getting annoyed that once it stuck to the surface for a while that, well, it didn’t actually stick after a while :). This made me look at alternatives and that’s when I started using the Meguiar’s tape and the current 3M version. I like the new 3M a lot and I use both the white/offwhite and the green version quite a bit. I’ve also tried frog’s or froggy’s tape (maybe that’s just local to me) and a few others, but really found the current 3M to be the best of all I have ever used before. Hope that helps!
