You’ve finished building your prop, armor, headdress, or other amazing aspect of your cosplay. Now it’s time to paint. Just like when you paint a wall in your home, you can have cleaner lines and an easier time applying different layers by using tape to cover the areas you want to remain untouched. In one of their helpful getting back to basics type of videos, Punished Props (specifically Bill Doran) goes over his preferred type of masking tape and how to mask off areas of your painting subject and use the technique to your advantage.
