      how to paint perfect line Once you have your wall taped off, you will paint down the edge of the tape with your first color (light gray). This “seals” the tape. Any paint that’s going to bleed under the tape will be this 1st color, which is the same color as your newly painted wall, so when it bleeds, it will blend in.

      how to paint perfect lines. Love this but wait a full day before you put tape over new paint or it will peel off! Secret is : tape over new painted wall in corner, then paint the first coat on new wall with the first colour. It seals the tape and any bleeding will be of the correct colour. Then paint your new colour over that. Slowly peel tape when paint is just dry.

      How to paint perfect lines: 1) Paint 1st color OVER the edge you want a crisp line on. 2) When paint dries tape off where you want your crisp line to be. 3) Paint down the edge of the tape with first color to “seals” the tape. Any paint that bleeds under the tape will be 1st color, which is the same color as your newly painted wall, so it will blend in. 4) paint with your 2nd color. Brush down the same edge over the tape. Allow this coat to dry. When 2nd color is mostly dry, remove the tape.
