1. Painting Straight Lines with FrogTape and Caulking
To begin, let’s talk cut ins. I know there are a lot of painters out there who refuse to use tape. I get it. There is a time and place for it. And every painter should be well versed in not only how to cut in with just a brush, but how to do so well and efficiently. That being said, why not utilize tape where it makes the job go by quicker, and gives you a sharper line? Because let’s face it, you cannot beat the kind of straight line that a little tape can achieve. The technique, specifically, that I am referring to is painting straight lines with FrogTape and caulking. Practice what I am about to tell you, and soon enough you will be able to do this in the same amount of time that it would take you using just a brush. And I guarantee it’ll be a superior product, as well.
