Liquid mask is good, but takes some practice to get right.

Go read the specs on 3m tape as dave suggested or frog tape. Both are excellent.  Frog tape is a 50m roll and comes ready for acrylic or oil based paints  (2 different types) also in low tack and hi tack. So there are 4 options on one tape.  3m tape that dave suggests is excellent as well and used in the car industry. But for plimsoll lines etc tamiya is best as you buy it in ready widths.

If you are having problems with bleed, a light spray of clear will seal the tape, just make sure that it is compatible,

Why not try over-spraying with a clear coat?  That is what will bleed and not be visible. 

One of the unwritten rules of this forum is that you must not read any of the earlier posts in the same thread
QED, I think.

We went for the Frog tape in the end.  The choice was for the one for spray paint and it was applied as suggested.

After pressing down the edge by running our thumb along it, we lightly sprayed over the join with the base coat, as recommended.  The painting was  applied about 4 hours later and left overnight in the warm house.  It peeled off the following day very easy with no tearing or stretching and the results are SUPERB.

Please see picture for the results.

Thanks for the inputs guys.      :-))
