Frog Tape for paint masking
« on: August 16, 2011, 05:51:17 pm »
I have used regular masking tape and blue painters masking tape but have always had some bleeding issues and some release issues.   For my last plexi marquee I tried Frog Tape and it really is as good as it says.  Best money I have spent on painting tape.   Clean lines and great release.  Got it at my local Home Depot.

I have a friend who owns a painting company and he told me to use this.  I was making a cornhole set and needed to tape off for lines.  It worked much better than anything I had ever done.  Lowes carries it also.
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

I got some frog tape that I got from a promotion of the Disney princess and the frog movie. It was a really odd tie-in being that the demographic for that movie is girls age 3-13 who like princesses and not advanced painting projects.
