Masking Wood Trim

You can paint like a pro if you mask your work. Use pre-gummed masking paper or wide masking tape to protect anything you don't want splattered or painted over. Masking is a great way to paint adjacent surfaces, like where door or window trim of one color meets wallboard of another. Mask the trim and you can paint the wallboard right up to the edge of the trim. Reverse the process and you can paint the trim to within a whisker of the wallboard. When you're finished, carefully remove the tape and presto! A perfect paint job.

1 Use pre-gummed paper or wide masking tape to protect wood moldings from paint splatters. Leave the outside edge of the masking tape loose.
2 After applying the tape, run the tip of a putty knife along the inside edge of the tape to seal against seeping paint. You should remove the masking materials as soon as the paint is too dry to run.

Painting tips & tricks of the day

Choosing the right paint texture
Each paint finish has its own properties. The more matte the finish, the more it hides imperfections and uneven reflections, but it's less washable. The glossier the finish, the more washable it is, but also the more sensitive to imperfections and it will mask less efficiently. In order: glossy, semi-gloss, pearl, eggshell, satin, matte. Semi-gloss is best for hall walls and for windows and frames; use matte on ceilings and satin and pearl for the rest. Kitchens, bathrooms and basements have their own antifungal paints.

Drying paint and the temperature
Paint in a ventilated and temperate space. When temperatures are between 10C and 32C there's no risk, although 15c to 22C is ideal. Latex paint will dry in a few hours at this temperature. Oil-based paints will dry more rapidly in a warm, dry environment.
