Masking and Wetsansing Question.

Post by ArnisAndyz on August 19th 2009, 9:54 am

Those of you who are wetsanding after every other coat....are you just leaving the masking tape on while you wetsand? Pulling tape off and putting it back on would be hell! Does the water creep under the masking tape and effect adhesion? I'm using the blue 3M tape, just finished my first 2 coats and tonight its time to wetsand!

Thanks,

Andy

i left mine on the whole 2 weeks i was painting and sanding. That was hard to get off. The water didnt affect anything, but i'd change the tape every 4 coats (2 days) just so you dont get a lot of buildup. The green tape is easier to remove too

Thanks for the reply. I guess its will be less work changing the tape every 2 days vs pealing stuck tape off.

yeah.. I had to use a razorblade to keep from peeling of the paint - and then the glue was stuck on the trim so I had to clean all that off


I would have done it much different if i really cared about the outcome. Now that I see how good it looks I wish I would have!

So use the "Green" tape instead of the Blue painters tape?
