Thanks everyone for your help and advice on the tape. Have some Pink on the way and will also try out Blue painters tape if I can find it at Bunnings as well as Electrical tape and see what works best and what is most economical.
Think your question has been answered. i use both the blue painters and the pink Floriani. The pink will stick longer than the blue, but the blue is cheaper. So guess it doesn't matter! I can use the blue 2-3 times then I have to replace it.
Thanks for your input I am going to try both.
I use the blue painters tape
They seem to be painter's tape, not available where I live. Here they only sell the paper crepe like tape that works well as long as you don't leave it on overnight.
Sounds like masking tape.
Floriani makes a Pink Perfection Tape...I haven't used it but many like it...it is a bit expensive...
Hubby ordered me some of this but I am still going to try the painters tape as well.
Thanks for telling us the name of it so much easier to search when you have a product name.
My pleasure...let us know when you have decided which is best for you...
My painters tape is green but I have also found a 24 hour masking tape that is cheaper and works better.
If you're good with scissors, buy the wide painter's tape and you can split it down the middle.
The pink is expensive painters tape. I won some at a class I was taking. The blue is just as good.
They blue tape is available at the Hardware Store, it doesn't leave any residue on the fabric.
