DIY secret: Perfectly painted stripes. How to get your stripes right, with no bleeding color:1. Paint the lighter color as a base coat. Allow to dry completely, then use painter's tape to mark off the stripes for the darker color. 2. Before tackling the stripes, do one more layer of the lighter color along the seams of the tape. This fills the gaps so that the darker color won't bleed. 3. Wait for that layer to dry completely, then paint your stripes. Let dry again before pulling off the tape.

Clever way to prevent bleeding when painting stripes - tape off, paint one more coat of base coat along the seams of the tape. This fills in the gaps so the stripe color won't bleed. Let dry completely, then paint stripe color on top, and let dry completely again, before removing tape.
