When applying masking tape ensure that you are starting with a nice, clean surface. Apply the tape as close to the surface as you can, pressing gently down to make sure that it is firmly in place. If you not feeling confident go for shorter strips rather than longer ones.
To remove masking tape peel your tape off gently and carefully, pulling it towards you firmly and slowly. If paint has already dried to the tape, score the area with a sharp knife, ensuring you don't cut the wall.
In most cases different coloured masking tapes are designed to help you differentiate between what their different purposes are. They can also help to make the tape stand out more clearly against a plain background.
