I have the same problem. My husband and I painted vertical stripes 6" wide along a ten foot wall using none of these preventative measures. Now we have 11 eight foot tall stripes that have bled under the tape all the way down the stripes. Our idea for correcting this is to use a putty knife and possibly a modeler's paint brush, and carefully go over where it bled. My concern is that if we line up the putty knife wth the line of where the tape was that is also at the edge of our stripe, if we're not careful enough we will paint the white unevenly. I also believe there is no way my husband will put up tape again, even to fix the problem. Any thoughts on this?
