Hi there were doing up my sons room just now it's going yellow on the top and blue on the bottom but we're having problems when we mask off the wall for the line and take it off again the paint is peeling off does anyone have any idea what could be causing this one wall is ok but the others are peeling.
The answer could well be the type of tape you're using. Try a low tack masking such as Frogtape delicate surface. Available from Screwfix code 54939. or a proper decorators merchant. Leave the paint to harden fully before masking over, and remove the tape as soon as possible after completion.
In that case it would seem to be a preparation problem. Is it just your paint coming off, or is it taking a previous coating with it ? What prep did you do before painting ? and what was on the wall before you started ?
It could be the tape your using. Try a low-tack masking tape - this can be brought from any decorating stores & supermarkets. Don't leave it overnight or for more than 2 hours. Best peeling the tape off as soon as you have finished painting.
