Scotch Blue Painter's Tape for Delicate Surfaces

Read 3 Reviews



I am highly disappointed with the quality of the tape. This is was my first time painting project and I decided to paint half the walls of my entire 1200 sq.ft condo. Being risk adverse, I made sure to splurge on what I thought would be quality tape and purchased a few rolls of the ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape Multi-Surface with Advanced Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector 2093EL. I read and followed the instructions to test on a spot first; I placed a piece of tape on the wall and after a few hours I removed the tape which came off perfectly fine. As a result I proceeded to tape all necessary walls and baseboards. I was absolutely horrified when I went to proudly remove the tape from such a large painting project and revealed chunks of paint and drywall torn off the walls. The tape was supposed to protect the walls I wasn't painting but instead created a nightmare as I now have to sand the chunky drywall and somehow find a decent color match (previous owners chose color and didn't leave a can to color match). To make things even worse, the tape was extremely difficult to take off in certain areas and came off in tiny little bits further increasing the time of this painting project. Painters beware - this product is terrible.






This blue painter's tape is incredible. It is just sticky enough to get the job done, but has never left a residue or any kind of mark or damage to anything I have ever placed it on. It can even be used as a standard tape in a pinch. A great thing to keep on hand.




It's painting tape, it works


If you are one of those amazing painters who can cut an edge with the best of them then maybe you don't need to tape. Me however, I really need the help a great taping job can provide, this blue tape, allows me to have clean lines, easier color transitions. Really an essential product for a do it your self painter.
