A lunchtime short black (or espresso for those of you beyond these shores) as I wait for paint to dry. So far, touch wood, the install is going relatively smoothly. Minor difficulties with green masking tape - it’s too low tack for the wall, probably best suited for smooth shiny surfaces, so keeps coming off. Should have stuck with what I know – and end up using my trusty purple/lilac tape along the top edge. That stuff is so good. I hope sealing the edge of the green tape will keep it stuck down. Once dry, the first layer of “oxymoron” follows. Brush paint the edges then follow with a roller over the rest of the wall. Repeat three more times over the coming days and it’s done. Well, done save for the inevitable retouching that will be required when the tape is removed, but so far so good.
