Re: messy painting
My2¢... I have used local hardware store and house painter’s tapes and they are horrible.
Now I use auto body shop masking tape / painter tape. They're the best on the market. The bad part about it.....don't leave it on for more than a day or two because they're SOB to remove.
By the way, you can buy it from auto body / paint supply stores. Look in the phone book, you'll find them.
One more thing, if you see "auto body tape" inside local auto parts store.....run away...they're not the same if you buy from auto body /paint supply store.....trust me on that....I've been doing this for years.

You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape.
If it doesn't move and should, use WD-40.
If it shouldn't move and does, use the Duct Tape.
