    Hello, every time we use masking tape or frog tape, when removing the tape they often remove small flakes of paint/plaster? Does all tape do this? Many thanks

    I had the same on my new walls, hence having to go round touching it up. :(
    I await the replies from those in the know as to why. (and if they say it's too soon to be painting, mine was left several weeks).

    The YELLOW frog tape is the one that should do the least damage.

    What are you using?

    Sometimes the only way to avoid it is to remove the masking tape before the paint is dry.
