It was all going fine on the red and blue diamonds. Nice sharp edges with minimal bleed.
The blue was Wickes paint, the red, Blakes. Both nice and gloopy. Having no cream paint I went out and bought a tin of Dulux weathershield, which is definitely single cream rather than double, so it seeped along the grain of the wood under the masking tape.
Rats!! Now I'll have to patch up the blue and red diamonds and henceforth paint the rest using hand and eye rather than masking tape.
However that won''t be until next week because in a couple of hours time we're off to Norfolk for our annual sailing
