I use blue tape on just about everything so I agreed to give it a try.
This is ScotchBlue’s New Painter’s Tape Edge-Lock
I have always had trouble with paint leaking through my blue tape in the past but this tape has the new Edge-Lock Line Protector.
Sounds good… But does it really work?
I have had a project idea in my head for sometime now and knew this would be the perfect project to try my new tape on.
I started by cutting a 1x12x4 piece of white pine into 3 even squares. If you don’t have a saw, you can have Lowe’s or Home Depot cut it for you!
After cutting my wood I used a dark mahogany stain with a foam brush to stain each of my pieces. I let the stain soak for about 15 minutes and then wiped off the excess.
Here they are dry…
I decided the best test for this mighty blue tape was some spray paint!
I lined the edges of my boards with my blue tape. I lined the tape up with the sides to keep my lines straight. I then took a second line of tape to cover my edges.
A bit closer…
Now the fun part!
I sprayed each board with my red spray paint.
After letting the spray paint dry I started removing my tape.
It passed my test for sure!! Those look pretty straight to me!!!
Woohoo!! How great is that?? I did all three boards without any leaking at all.
I love this tape!
