  • Invent a Brand New Design

    No need for a template. Just start taping and see what you can create with your own imagination. If you like working with a pattern better, you can find links to tape patterns and other ideas on our Creative Techniques page. For freshly painted surfaces (at least 24 hours old), 3M recommends ScotchBlue™ WALLS + WOOD FLOORS Painter’s Tape. And be sure to visit our How to Tape page for basic paint prep and tape removal tips.
