That is until this tape came along.
FrogTape is seriously the most amazing product I've ever used. It makes your lines perfect on just about any surface, I mean, look at this hardwood floor:
There is absolutely no way I would have gotten that kind of result with regular painters tape, on an extremely rough surface no less!!!!!
I can't give enough praises for this tape, it has changed the way I think about painting and has given me a whole world of opportunities to explore!
