I’m going to show, from start to finish, my first project with Frogtape. I was asked to participate in a challenge to paint a project, use Frogtape, and then review the outcome.
I took this piece of furniture I’ve had for years, that has never been painted, and gave it a go.
First Paint The Table:
First I painted it white. It took quite a few coats because the wood had never been painted. I left that to dry for a few days here in my kitchen.
Frogtape is a multi-surface, medium adhesion painter’s tape. It is designed for use on a variety of surfaces, including unfinished wood, glass, metal, carpet, and stone.
Adhering Frogtape To The Table:
I planned on creating stripes for my project, so I started out by adhering tape where I didn’t want the paint to go.
Then I started dabbing my black paint in between the paint with a foam stencil brush.
Black on white is always tricky. So I was really worried about what the outcome would be with such strongly contrasting colors.
I’m now all done with the painting. The scariest part was taking the tape off immediately. Always in the past with other types of tape, I left the tape on until the painted object was completely dry.
Frogtape Paint Block Technology:
Frogtape is the only tape treated with paint block technology, a super absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint. It instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, which helps prevent paint bleed.
And I can sure say that it did what they said it would do! I love it here in my 1934 kitchen. Now that plain tabletop is striking instead of boring.
Today I added a little something to decorate the table surface to see how it would look with my new bold stripes. A black plate holder looks great with my black stripes.
“FrogTape®” is designed with a liner on the back of the tape for easier application. Just remove one half of the liner, position the tape and then remove the other half.
My Finished DIY Project With Frogtape:
I love the clean, sharp lines of the stripes!
What I liked probably best of all was getting the project done so quickly. Definitely a DIYer’s dream come true with this tape. Because there was no waiting on the paint to dry and worrying the paint would bleed through the tape.
Now I’m looking all over for another piece of furniture to experiment on. This was certainly a fun project!
