    I'm actually pissed. Why does the best tape come in bulky and unnecessary plastic packaging?

      While frog tape is clearly the best for walls. In my experience, plain blue painters tape works pretty good for water colour art ;P

      i could have used this info about two and a half years ago.. the tape i used wasn't bad when it came to bleeding but it ripped off the white latex paint i applied first and on the part where two colors meet i just ended up using a cheap ass craft paintbrush to do the edge where they meet bc it kept getting ripped off.. fun times

      As a painter this test does not really apply to real life. You do not use "yellow" or "white" tape in the same places that you use blue tape. Also most painters know to "feather" next to tape lines because ALL tape bleeds when you load it up. The price point really comes in when you're talking about how long it will stick on a house or on a surface in your house.

      Great test. I am a professional painter and use the multi surface green frog tape about 75%. The blue frog tape also works very very well and I use that around door casings.

      Hmm. This makes me wonder what type of tape is best for working on different types of paper and art mediums. Nice video.

      Could've used this 6 months ago when I was spray painting the cornhole boards my Dad made. Or a year ago when I was painting my room, though in that case the tape just wouldn't stick

      I think the reason I sat and watched a 14 minute video on painter tape without even pausing is because you're very good at getting to the point without any parts of the video where you get bored or want to skip to another part, or get through a long monologue. Great job, good video

          My mind has the weirdest attention span. Like an action movie will bore me in 8 minutes, but this? Nah, I watched this. There’s something wholesome about these videos that are just made to help, about such mundane things... it’s really cool to watch <3

          I really thank you for that tape comparison. I painted my whole interior of my house by hand because I had bleed over from using tapes. Now after seeing this video, I’m going to use Frog tape. THANK YOU!!!
