painting entry door...help!!!!!!


i bought a brand new steel entry door for my house and wanted to paint it. So i went and bought primer and acrylic paint. so i primed it and then masked everything off using painters tape then painted, let sit and dry for 24 hrs, went to peel tape off and took a sheet of paint off with it. It look like i didn't paint anything at all. What am i doing wrong not enough primer or not dried enough, wrong paint...???? plz help

You should have took the tape as soon as you were done painting. The paint that lapped onto the tape made a bridge with the paint on the door and untill the paint fully cures it can sometimes be easily lifted off being that top skin of the paint was more cured than the paint underneath.

If you pull the tape as soon as you are done painting, then you will be able to also catch and area's where the paint went under the tape.
