How to Paint Sharp Lines on Textured Surfaces
The kit includes:
- FrogTape® Textured Surface (link to product page)
- Patented PaintBlock® Technology Edge Sealer with applicator. It’s a super absorbent polymer that reacts with water in latex paint to instant create a barrier that won’t let paint bleed through.
Apply FrogTape® Textured Surface by pressing down into the texture, eliminating gaps. Then, firmly run a damp cloth along the tape’s edge to activate the PaintBlock® Technology.
Shake the bottle of the liquid edge sealer, then remove the cap and foil seal.
Tightly attach the brush applicator to the bottle and remove the clear cap from the applicator.
Using the brush applicator, apply the edge sealer generously along the tape’s edge. Use overlapping circular or back-and-forth motions for sufficient coverage. You’ll be able to see the solution as it dispenses—it should have a milky appearance.
Once the tape’s edges are covered, let it dry for 15 minutes before you paint.
Remove the brush applicator, place the cap back on the bottle and wash the applicator with running water, separating the bristles. Dry with a cloth and always cover your brush with the applicator’s protective cap when it’s not in use.
When your edge sealer is dry, your surface is ready to paint.
When the last coat of paint is dry to the touch, you can remove the tape.
That’s how easy it is to get super sharp paint lines on a rough or bumpy surface.
