Krylon has more than one family of paint, and they're not compatible. You can't go by the brand name - you have to check product lines too.

There is also a little trick to prevent paint bleeding under the tape that I am surprised no one mentioned. If you want to be absolutely sure the colors do not bleed under the tape, spray a coat of the clearcoat first. Then, if there is any seepage, it wil be clear and virtually unnoticeable.

Spreading resin over bare wood is not enough. You need to use fiberglass cloth to keep the resin from sinking into the woodgrain. 1.5 to 1.75 ounce cloth is the best and is commonly available at hobby shops.
