Easier than a trash pic or tooth pic...quicker also. I always have a roll of tape on the table in the booth. Even when wearing a suit and headsock, still always the possibility of an eyelash or piece of hair to fall right in the middle of the roof or hood!
Ah yes, slipped my mind about mentioning runs! same technique.
Is there a technique to doing this? I got a smallish run / paint sag on a panel and I thought of this tip. I ripped of some 18mm tape, folded width ways sticky side out. The paint had started to dry and I used the tape. What seemed to happen I was removing too much paint which resulted in divots. I was able to sand them out, I was trying to get it smooth and did not realize I was going too far. Is this best done with the paint really wet?
