Painting Base Boards-need tips

1175 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  saggdevil
I am not a painter by trade but for the past several days I've been helping a friend get his new-used home ready to move into.

The last hour of the day, I spent painting baseboards with a cut brush laying down. The floor is Terrazzo so I can scrap off any paint that I get on it.

What's the fastest way to paint them. Do I need to use a plastic guard or masking tape or something to protect the floor.

Guard wiped off repeatedly or tape. If you use tape, remove it after about 10-15 minutes to avoid getting an "edge". Then immediately wipe with damp rag to clean floor. The blue painters tape is easier to work with vs. masking tape. The blue removes easier. The green "frog" tape is even better.
