How to fix paint bleeds

RELATED TOPICS: MASKING | PAINT
Tip: It seems that no matter how careful I am when I tackle a masking project, I end up with some underspray that bleeds under the tape.  

My remedy for this is to use wax or rubbing compound (I use Meguiar’s products) on the affected areas. I apply the wax to a toothpick or cotton swab to rub away the underspray to achieve a sharp paint line.   

I’ve found it must be done within 15 minutes or so after painting – before the paint has time to set up.
