can anyone recommend a good masking tape/method that won't pull the paint off when you take it off?

Nessa, you can get low tack masking tape, but must admit that I've never tried it as I usually have the opposite problem and can never get masking tape to stick :D ... 728/p85936

Buy decent tape, which is normally either blue or green in colour.

Then if it is too tacky, put it through finger and thumb before you apply.

And remember to take it off as soon as you can - don't leave it till the paint is dry.
