Easy DIY trick of the trade that prevents paint from bleeding under painters tape or vinyl stencils.
Check out this short video which shows this easy trick of the trade to prevent paint from bleeding under painters tape.
This is an example of paint bleeding under painters tape
Apply tape as desired then run a small bead of caulking along the tape edge. Use your finger to then wipe away as much of the paintable caulking as possible. This caulking fills the gaps that would allow paint to seep under the painters tape. Now just paint with no worries.
Check out the short how-to video attached to this post to see just how easy and how well this trick works.
