Why do I have so much trouble removing painters tape from woodwork?There are always areas that the paint comes off the wall! I may as well forget the tape and cut everything in, I have to go back and touch it all up anyway.
I try not to use tape unless I have to do so or there are to be many coats. I have been pleased with frog tape. It is supposed to have some patented edge system that seems to keep paint from crawling underneath. I always take a drywall knife and burnish tape down.
Oh well, you will find with a quality trim brush and some practice you will become more confident skipping tape for exactly the reasons you suggest.
By the way, I usually prefer to paint trim first and cut the wall color into it.
