Forum Title: Method for masking stained millwork
Got a big one coming up full of spotless stained millwork. Usually I mask with paper and tape after cutting in to prevent roller spatter, but I'm wondering if there's a faster way. I've been tempted to mask it before cutting in (like you would a painted baseboard) but I'm paranoid I'd not always get the tape perfectly lined up on the wood OR that I could have some paint bleed. I know some clear caulk when they tape, but don't you have to pull the tape before the caulk dries? I don't see how that would work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I like to roll up a runner so it's about 8 inches wide and flat. I put a little tape on the inside of the last fold to hold it together. Then I just lay it out along the base and up the wall a couple inches. it rounds corners well and has just enough weight to stay put without being to cumbersome. Cut the ceiling and roll, then move the tube down to cut the base. Second coat oftentimes gets the clear caulk and tape if the job is paying for that treatment.
