Help me!! I'm nervous about this project. My husband and I are new to painting and "we" painted my daughters bedroom this weekend. Since it was a group of friends that helped out and since I'm pregnant I wasn't there to supervise. They used masking paper to mask off the ceiling line (against my advice) and I haven't had a chance to remove it yet (since I was away for the weekend). How do I remove the paper without having the paint peel? Worse yet, I'm afraid that the paint seeped under. Any recommendations to fix goofs without having to paint the ceiling?
I learned the hard way that it's best to remove the masking tape while the paint's still wet. Awhile back I had to redo a significant amount of basement wall because I let the paint dry, and the paint stuck to the masking tape, and then when I pulled the tape, some of the paint came up.
If the paint wants to peel with the tape........the heat from a hair dryer MAY make the adhesive in the tape release a little easier......avoiding the peel........
