A lot would depend on what type of paint you are using and what the weather conditions were when you painted it. Assuming you used an oil based enamel and the weather was cool I would wait until next sunday morning before putting tape on the paint. Automotive paints would dry faster.

It isn't a matter of peeling off the uncured paint. If the surface was sanded correctly adhesion won't be the issue. Tape tracking will be the issue. If this is uncatylized paint (no hardner) I wouldn't tape on it for a month and get it out in the sun for that month if you can. Then use 3M green tape and double or triple your masking paper. Reason for these is the reducer/solvent in the second painting will soak through , or try to , and if it succeeds then it will tape track or dull down the first painting . If you use cheaper tape then double or triple it also.

I've never experienced tape tracking on alkyd enamel after it dries a week. In hot weather 24 hours is enough. I don't leave the tape on there for days at a time though. If I can't complete the project in 24 hours I remove the tape and tape again another day.

I guess a good method would be to lay your thumb on the paint and press for 30 seconds. If you can see your thumb print then don't tape on it until you can't.

The thumb print was my way of checking for cured/dry paint, and it worked well. Rusty J.
