Tape the design off first with edge lock frog tape and then paint the wall completely. If you want the design color to be the current wall color follow steps from above if not paint that color first wait 2 days then tape off hope this helps . They seek different tape widths for Different thickness of your design lines

okay....so i want the design to be yellow, and the background to be gray...so, i should tape off the design 1st, then paint, then wait 2 days pull off tape and paint the design yellow? sorry if i'm messing this up but it's the first time ever doing this and the design shows never really say how to do it.

No paint the yellow first in the areas where the design Will go if not sure paint the whole yellow wait two days then tape off with frog tape then paint the grey and remove the tape when you are done you want to make sure you press the edges of the tape and also paint the grey onto the tape
