I've experimenting with rough paper to paint birch trees. I've been masking off the trees with masking tape, then painting the background. With just one layer/row of trees taped into the white background it worked perfectly. But when I tried masking tape on top of painted areas it pretty much failed - the paint seeped under the tape like crazy. I let the paper dry for 12 hours between each layer so I'm sure it was dry. I also ran the back of my fingernail down the edges of the tape between each application of paint.
