Xpost - Painting/Patching Tape Paint


Put my thread in the wrong forum.

2.5 - 3 Week old Aura Paint on Walls.
Recently put blue painters tape on the side in which the stair string/stair landing meets paint.

Tape was on for 5 days - the only ~moisture~ it may have some was the oil from the staining. Fast foward today, I SLOWLY removed the tape...only to it have lifted edges of paint (which I expected) but also in some spots...it also lifted the top layer of paper on the sheetrock, exposing brown.

No way around this . Got to gardz the paper, mud, prime and paint the Entire Wall so it blends in proper right ?
The finish is Aura Matte.

Xpost - Painting/Patching Tape Paint


To late now but it should have been removed while the paint was still wet.
Also always bend it over and peel it off slowly. You peel in the direction where the tape is still in contact with the wall.
May want to practice painting with a quality sash brush so there's no tape needed.

Just for clarification....the tape was put on 2.5-3 weeks since the paint was applied to wall.
It was not used to cut in paint.
Tape was applied to the wall to Prevent stain transfer from stairs to wall

It is always a good practice to use a razor blade knife to cut any dried overlapped paint from the tape, before removeal. This will prevent shearing.

I dunno if it's the case of slow curing paint - DECLINE in all types of painters tape.....but surely, I was not expecting the lift on removal down to brown paper.....

Oh well, she's mudded, and ready to be sanded and re-rolled.
On the plus side....the stairs came out pretty awesome. This new water based sealants is pretty interesting....a little runny for my taste, but no odor, decent drying times... just got to go light and easy on application and watch out for drips. I laid 5 coats all in one day !
