[This is part of our How to Paint Moldings series]

You don’t need to mask your crown moldings with tape when painting your walls.  All you need is a good paint brush, good paint and the right technique.

In fact, using masking tape on your moldings will give you the worst possible result because the paint will always seep under the tape and get on the moldings.  So you might as well paint free-hand and save yourself all that time masking your moldings.  It’s really easy, I show you how in these two short videos.
