Re: When to remove masking tape?
I tried a new way to make the tape seam perfect. painting an accent stripe onto a painted surface. put your tape down then paint a thinned light coat of the same paint you used under the tape and seal the tape lines. if you put down a very small amount of paint just at the tape line it will dry very quickly and then you paint over with your accent color. when you peel the tape there is no bleed of the accent color. as for the time to remove the tape as soon as your paint is not going to move take the tape up. I cant say this method of sealing will work with all kinds of paints but I have tried it with a waterborne polyurethane and it sure worked nice. tried it in the house with latex and it was perfect.
