I am looking for a good way to mask off rough textured stucco from the wood trim. I’ve used blue tape with painter’s plastic but it doesn’t hold real well. I have sprayed all the wood trim and now am faced with painting the stucco without painting the wood trim. Suggestions welcome for a good way to mask the trim from the stucco.

Instead of the blue painters tape, why not try Frog tape. It supposedly sticks better than the blue stuff and actually stops bleed through because it is treated.

I have used Frog tape before on a relatively new painted surface. It is really good tape but it will peel off the paint if it is not totally cured. I believe it takes 28-30 days for paint to be cured enough to be able to safely use Frog tape.

Well, since it is so fresh, you may have to wait. I know of nothing that won’t peel fresh paint off before it has cured.

One of a car painters old tricks is to take regular masking tape and roll a strip off. Then take it and place the sticky side on your denim pants. Then pull the tape up. The tape will bring up some of the fibers of the denim and it will be less sticky. It works similar to the blue tape. You could experiment with it to see if it would so what you want.

Use a paint shield instead of tape. Wipe it clean as you go to prevent any build up from transferring to the surface you are trying to protect.
