I don’t know which one you bought, but the medium-high tack one I bought doesn’t stick as well as the Perfect Tear medium tack. In order to get the medium-high tack to work, I actually needed to sand REALLY well with an electric sander, then use my hard plastic spatula to press it down. After that, no peeling or flyaways. Couldn’t get it to work on the draftboard at all.
I ran out this weekend and my new roll isn’t due until tomorrow. I really needed masking for my orders…soooo… I don’t recommend this, as my socks are probably permanently stuck to the kitchen floor and my nostrils have been glued together for days, but I got a roll of brown paper masking from Home Depot from the paint section. There is no adhesive on it. And I got Easy-Tack spray from Michaels. I sprayed it onto the paper, let it dry for a minute, then put it on my wood, and used my hard plastic spatula to press out the bubbles like regular masking…it worked perfectly and when I pull it up, there is no sticky residue. However, watch your machine like a hawk, because I feel like too much power in one spot will cause the paper to catch fire easily. I didn’t have any issues, but I wouldn’t recommend it unless you REALLY needed it.
