Here in the states, there is a "blue tape" sold in home paint stores 
and some hardware stores that is excellent for your needs. It's low 
tack, easily cut with a sharp blade, conforms fairly well to surfaces.

Practice a bit on a trial, off to the side.
There is a spot between burnishing it down too much (paint pulls up)  
and not enough (paint leaks through).

Give it a try.
