How to remove green paint on white trim

I was painting our dining room. Use frogger masking tape. Didn't exactly keep the paint from seeping on the white trim.

Trim on two ways have a lot of green paint on side of trim and edge. Bought a 5 in 1 paint scrapper but it actually removes the white paint as well. Thinking about using my Dreman Tool to sand the green paint off.

Is there a better technical or easy way to remove the green paint from the white trim?

Welcome to the forums Mark!

While products like 'goof off' and 'oops' will remove dried latex paint, they might be difficult to use successfully on the edge where the paint seeped under the tape. Your best bet would be to sand and then touch up the baseboard with white enamel - hopefully you have some leftover enamel or know which paint was used on the base.

Tape is often problematic. When using tape it is best to still try and keep the paint off of the tape [practice your cut in skills] and the remove the tape while the paint is still wet.

How to remove green paint cut in technic

marksr

Thanks for the information. Yes, I agree with you on practicing cut in technic. And you are absolutely right, I had painted over the tape thinking it would not bleed.
