  • Anyone see the epsode of trucks this weekend?

    They were masking off a paint job and talked about back taping to prevent lines in the paint to make the new paint transition into the old paint. Just wonder if anyone here does that with powder or has tried it?

    Just my 2 cents, I don't think that would work with powder. The idea is to create an angle that the paint can't reach to prevent the paint from building too thick at the tape edge. I think if you did that with powder, you'd get the sandpaper-grain orange peel from the powder being too light at the tape line.

      I've tried it with limited sucsess. The powder stuck a little more to the paper than I thought it would. Then when I pulled it off, the powder fell on the area where I didn't want the powder.

      But that was only one attempt with printer paper.
