Hello Randy,

I am not sure if you know of the product “frog tape” some time ago I did a project for my wife and found the stain bled and almost ruined it.
In the replies I had some advice about better proucts and valuable input from other LJs so I set about and did some tests, documenting the results as a blog series.
Sadly the Masters chain of stores where I originally purchased it from have closed but I guess your version of the store Lowes would still carry it.

It may be of some assistance to you.

I guess you dont need any more advice about buying hardware in Grocery stores sometimes can be a bit dodgy, as painters tape is a specality item and needs a bit of WW know how to find the correct product.

For Example:
My son used common garden variety masking tape to mask up all his polished floors before painting the skirting, only to find after removing it the paint had bled through the back of the tape onto the poilshed floor!
No doubt some mutterings went on as he had to go around and clean it all off later!

-- Regards Rob
