    Hi

    Am painting double doors and surrounding frame. The surrounding wall is papered. Is there a way of protecting this in lieu of masking tape?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Have you considered 'Frogtape delicate surface tape'?
    I've found it really good for painted surfaces, and it states it's suitable for use on wallpaper.

    Thin the paint slightly so it flows well and do it by hand with a good brush! Do the frame edges before the faces.

    Rev”edges before faces”-thanks, heard that before. Is there a preferred order in doing edges, outside before inside etc? Also would you do the room side before the hall?

    Thanks again 5A5C6448-73E0-4D7A-BE79-3E047E880627.jpeg

    Do edges to paper first. Frames where door opens inwards should be done first then you can open door to do outer frame.
    Do one edge with door shut then open door to do the rest. Once inner frame is done start the edges of the outer frame
