How to paint walls and ceiling using masking tape without damaging finish?

How do you paint a new plastered ceiling white and a new plastered wall anthracite without the masking tape ripping off the ceiling paint - we are having a nightmare??

Hi wali1953
You could try low grip masking tape but suggest you try a cutting in tool or paint shield.

Hi Wali1953
If you search on line they are widely available for a few pounds.
