I painted a wall and got some paint on the ceiling. I was wondering how long I have to wait before I can put some tape on the new wall paint so I can repaint the ceiling?
Wait a couple of days before painting the ceiling. You could try <a href="http://www.painters-toys.com/shurtape-cp-27-14-day-shurrelease-masking-tape.html" target="_blank">safe release masking tape</a> to lower your chances of damaging the wall paint. The biggest problem with this tape is low adhesion, it doesn't stick very well to new paint. An alternative is to use <a href="http://www.painters-toys.com/frogtape.html" target="_blank">Frog Tape</a>. This is different than all other types of making tape on the market. The glue expands a bit to make a barrier and produce better lines.
