Here is how I get perfect paint lines EVERY time with not a lot of extra work!
- Paint the entire wall the lighter of the two colors that you will be using and let it dry COMPLETELY (overnight at least.)
- Then, decide how thick you want your stripes, do the math, measure out the placement of the stripes, and tape them accordingly.
- Take a paper towel or dish towel and place it over your finger. Then press down firmly and rub on the tape line making sure it has no air bubbles and is on the wall with as few little gaps between the tape and the wall as possible.
- With the SAME color that the wall is already painted (the lighter of the two colors,) paint along the tape line only on the edge that will eventually be the darker color.
