Uneven Surfaces An uneven surface could be the reason your painter’s tape is peeling off paint. If there is debris, holes or bumps on your surface, the tape will not be able to adhere. Any gaps will create space for the paint to fill, which, when dry, will pull up along with the tape. The result is often a peeled mess.
