Scotch painters tape is great for taping off doorways, windows, and fixtures. You can also use it to create designs on your walls, such as stripes. You simply place the tape flatly against the area you are taping off. Make sure it is fully secured down so there are no weird spots when you remove the tape. The tape sticks well without peeling off any other paint of parts of the wall. The tape does not leave any residue on the area where you place it. You are left with nice sharp paint lines. I have used this tape on a variety of surfaces. It sticks fine to dry wall, wood, metal, and glass. They claim it can be used indoors or outdoors; however, I have only used it inside. I recommend Scotch painters tape! It makes painting much easier because you do not have to worry about getting paint on door or window frames. It makes creating designs on your walls easier too! Ease of Appliation Make sure you fully secure the tape down so no paint seeps under it.
