Removable options for hanging pictures on brick

Any suggestions for what to use to hang painting on a paited brick wall, and be able to remove the hooks/tape without damage

Re: Removable options for hanging pictures on brick

Hey @Jackie, Bunnings has a lot of options in the 3M range. I've only ever used them once on a painted plaster wall and it pulled the paint so I haven't bothered since. In saying that I know of other people that've used them without issue.

 

I'd just say, be prepared to have to touch up the paint after removing it as you may be unlucky like I was.

Re: Removable options for hanging pictures on brick

Guess it depends on the weight of the painting @Jackie. How big and heavy is it? Are you concerned about damage because you're in a rental property?
