I’ve been using ordinary blue painters’ tape for blocking my geometric paintings, and while it’s pretty good, there is inevitably some seepage of paint that I then have to touch up. It’s annoying.
Today I went to the hardware store to get some new tape because I’m running out. I explained my dilemma to the assistant and asked what tape to use. He says FrogTape. It claims to have complete colour block Has anyone here used it and if so, how effective was it in preventing seepage? It’s more expensive than the blue tape, so it had better work!
I just recently bought some of this tape too Ev and yes it does help.
On internet site I looked on said to tape with blue painters' tape, paint the edge between the tape/canvas with a thin line of acrylic gloss, let it dry, then paint what you want. That sounds like it wouldn't work. Who knows?
That's pretty good delineation, Ruth. No, leakage.
Exactly what I wondered, Ruth. Too, wouldn't matte medium be better than gloss if you have to paint over?
