Re: Blue Tape


Thanks for the info. I'll have to try out again.

I also cover the interior for the same reason, spraying the back side of the face frame.

Whenever possible, I pull the face frame and spray it separately.

Re: Blue Tape


So when frog tape first came out I performed a test on a shower door frog tape, blue tape and plain reg tape, but I also was told to dampen one edge of the frog tape before painting to set off the sealing edge of the tape.

So with all the tape on the glass door I just ran a roller over all of them and let it dry,

I came back and looked behind the glass and the FROG TAPE killed it no paint creep under the tape at all, clever sh#t but moisten the edge before painting it works better.

Used to use 3M blue until it started to not like to old oil based glossy surfaces. Nothing like spending a day taping and come in the next morning and it's all fallen down.

Of course, that only is a bit better than when you gobrobspray and it all blows off the walls or trim.

Frog tape has been a bit iffy lately as well.

Re: Blue Tape


I too was thinking how expensive the blue tape has got, and they have made the rolls narrower.
I use lots of the 3M static cling plastic. I can rack up a fair bit of cost in supplies on even a simple paint job, but time they save me is significant.

Re: Blue Tape


$2.39/roll. I have a roll of 3m and a roll of this on a current job and so far can’t tell the difference.

I’ve left 3M blue tape on painted drywall for not that long and it still pulled the white paper off the drywall... many times.
