HOW TO MASK BEFORE PAINTING: SOME ESSENTIAL TIPS HOW TO MASK BEFORE PAINTING: SOME ESSENTIAL TIPS

Are you going to paint your wall and you are in the process of preparing? Remember to mask any small areas that cannot receive paint carefully. Granted, this is a time-consuming exercise, but it is important to achieve a beautiful result. Discover here some essential tips for masking your walls.

Mask well with painter's tape for a beautiful result

After you've washed and degreased the painted walls, or sanded and dusted the new doors, you can proceed with masking.

When plastering interior walls, it is important not to paint outlets, the edge of the ceiling, and baseboards. Therefore, mask the areas to be protected with an appropriate and sufficiently wide adhesive tape (<38mm). Carefully attach the ribbon to the backing.

Do you want to paint frames? 

Better to dust the surface first. Make sure that a small part of the glass is still visible between the adhesive strip and the wood, to allow optimal adhesion of the paint. If a silicone band is present between the wood and the glass, it can never be painted. It is, therefore, better to eliminate it first. Then stick the adhesive tape at least 3 mm from the wood to have enough space to reapply the silicone with the gun against the glass when you finish your work. 

For painting interior doors, it is easier to paint when the door is removed. Take the latter out of its hinges; you can then easily paint the top and bottom. If you cannot remove the door, then protect the handle and doorframe with adhesive tape during the entire painting process.

When painting a ceiling, it is essential that your walls remain intact. To achieve this, always choose a wide masking tape (<50mm). If, when hiding the ceiling, you notice that the wall joint is not straight, stick your tape a few millimetres further down the wall and away from the line, and create a perfect joint between the ceiling and the ceiling—wall by filling this space. Remove the tape immediately after painting. This will give you a great separation between the colour of the ceiling and the walls, and you will avoid an uneven line.
