Owl Art and a Giveaway!!!

So, I was recently asked to try out this product.

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.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

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…
Now is where the new ScotchBlue Edge-Lock came into the picture.
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.
The results…
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!
Want to see the rest of it?

Do you like them?  I made them for my little lady’s nursery!  I’ll show you guys how to make the owls in another post.
You will love this stuff!
For me, there was a very clear difference between ScotchBlue Edge-Lock and the other guys.
If you are looking for painter’s tape that TRULY gives you a perfect edge… This is the tape for you!
Want to try some yourself?!?
ScotchBlue will be giving 8 of our readers their own roll of ScotchBlue Edge-Lock to try out!
