In the last few weeks, I've learned a thing or two about painting stripes. I'm no expert, but I have developed a strong opinion about what works and what doesn't work.
The kind of tape you use does not matter. I used Frog Tape, supposedly known for preventing seepage. Yeah, right...
To prevent seepage, seal your tape with the background paint color. I learned about this trick from House Bella. Unfortunately, I didn't know if I should believe this tip or not. Therefore, I sealed the tape on one wall, and I didn't seal the tape on another wall.
Since pictures are worth a thousand walls, let me show you how the trick worked.
I learned the hard way. Hopefully, you won't have to. Seal your tape!
