Masking tape ... there is a brand, I think it is called 'Frog Tape' it really is good, it is not cheap but (IMHO) it is well worth investing in. There are two versions normal and 'low tack', green and yellow, depending on what surface you are working on, it's good and works really well.
I was once meandering around Homebase/Wickes/Do-It-Up and as you do kept passing other people browsing. One were a pair of Polish blokes who were browsing the Frog Tape at the same time as me. I was trying to justify buying some as I had no immediate use for it, it's a bit pricey but it would look good hanging on a nail in the garage. While I mulled it over one of he Poles said to his his mate (in accented English) "I myust buy syome Frog Tape". "Why?" asked his friend. "Because I hyave none".
That made my mind up for me and I bought some. Which, one year on, I have still yet to use. It does look good in the garage though.
