Decide how many stripes you do the match to ensure that each stripe gets the same width. Use painter's tape to mark off equal stripes, one at a time. Paint the bottom stripe color, let it dry for 6-8 hours, then carefully peel off the tape. I’ve found the tape comes off better if it doesn’t sit too long on the previously painted layer; this is why you want to do the stripes one at a time instead of taping off all at once.
