    Can you tell us more about where you get your tape and the tape numbers? I would like to get what you have so I know what I am actually getting. sometimes you order something and it is what you thought it was.

    Wanted to play this video but says because of its privacy settings it can’t be played here. I’m a paid up subscriber so what gives?

    Great tips on which types of tapes to use. What would be great would be for Moe to give her tips on removing the tape after the varnish has dried.

    Its really nice to see the small details of how a professional works with masking tape. The way you twist the tape as you work it off the roll is a very good tip. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I also appreciated the overview of the different 3M tapes, very helpful. I was not aware of the importance of using different tapes for the different scenarios. This is going to help me a lot.

    Beyond my usual, trusty blue painter’s tape, I haven’t considered the sub-categories available based on tackiness, stretch, etc. Great stuff – my finish will improve because of this video.
