Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RT Did not stick to wall
I recently painted my kitchen, using the 1.41" "ScotchBlue Delicate Surface Painter's Tape.
The ScotchBlue tape barely stuck to the wall, leaving many gaps - even though I carefully smoothed the edge. It did not appear to adhere well, even though the surface was painted with a satin gloss paint. As I painted, I had to repeatedly smooth the tape's edge so that I would not overpaint and mar the surface covered.

I have tried many different kinds of masking tape and the Scotch-Blue Delicate Surface Painters Tape is the best I've ever used. I am a Model Railroader and use an airbrush for painting my locomotives and rolling stock and have always had problems with edge bleeding until I tried Scotch-Blue. I've been using it for about a month without a single problem. It needs minimal pressure to adhere and I've never had any bleeding or paint lifting. I have use it for 1/32" pin striping with absolutely no pleading.
I'm a 50 year Model Railroader and have been using an airbrush for over 30 years. Simply the best masking tape I've ever used.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TiredPaintingMom took finish off my laminate cabinet ends.
While there was no bleed through of paint, when I removed this tape, it stripped the surface off my laminate panels at the end of my cabinets. I wish I had used no tape or just a bunch of post it notes.
Do not use this product on delicate surfaces. It seems either people love or hate it. Obviously there is some kind of quality control issue in the amount of adhesive on this tape.
I am not posting reviews of this product in order to receive any kind of financial gain, only because I specifically bought it because I needed something for a delicate surface and I created work and aggrevation and an ugly kitchen for myself, and I want to save others that hassle!

I think this tape is GREAT !! I bought the tape while in the store & then came home to check the reviews. I was afraid to try it after I read all the bad reviews until I read the review about using your head. I painted my dining room in the afternoon, and did the trim the next morming about 18 hours later.I first tried it in a spot that would be hidden and it worked well. Then I used it for the rest of the room. I taped off one wall, painted it, and then removed the tape right away. I had NO PROBLEMS at all with this tape. Next week I will use it for my living room. I did not give the paint time to dry on the tape.

I taped off my walls to paint ceiling of a complete bath remodel. I finished and turned around and it was all falling off. I pressed hard and tried again, it kept falling off. Went straight to garbage. However it did stick to the tile around shower but when I pulled it off, it had bled through and looks terriable. It has caused me so much extra work. Will return what I have and will never buy again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Amanda88 Peeled the paint back off!
I taped off the entire room thinking I would be able to paint with ease but when I pulled the tape off the new paint peeled off with it. I had to go back and fix many spots and it made the process take that much longer. And it definitely doesn't help that I'm 36 weeks pregnant.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pete 16 Waste of money, do not buy!!!
I bought this tape to tape off a pattern on my dining room wall, thinking it was the best tape out. I was sadly mistaken, it definitely does not "edge lock". I spent two whole weekends working on this just to habe it look terrible because the tape bled through. I will never buy this product or anything from this company again!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thepainter Works for me!
After reading too many reviews that said this didn't work and seeking something other than free handing it (I stink at that...tried it), I decided that I would take what others had done with this product to make it work.
Sooooo, knowing that my prep skills were good (painted a good zinsser primer over oil based paint to get good adhesion of the latex paint), I went for it. The primer was at least a few days dried.
1. The tape was laid down with the intention that painting of all coats would be done in a day or two at most so I could peel it up quickly (don't leave it on for longer than necessary).
2. The tape was burnish well just before I painted an area (rubbed well to adhere).
3. The first paint I put down (just over the tape on the side with the tape and extending just 1/4 or so beyond the tape was the exact same color as the tape was sticking to. This would SEAL off any bleed
through that I might have missed with burnishing.
4. When that was dried I went for two coats of my paint. I did not glop it on; i was conservative because I knew a second coat was coming and I wanted as little bleed through as possible.
5. The tape was peeled up within a couple of days with just a spot here and there that required touch up. I peeled the tape back on itself to prevent any paint removal (worked like a charm)...NO PAINT
