Taping off the work area

Use a tape that is made for taping over painted areas so it won't pull up the paint below it when removed.
However, whether you use tape, cellophane, paper or any other masking device, the paint below it needs to be dry enough not to stick to it.

3M painter's tape sticks well and won't remove existing paint. 1)
