    Actually, this is a good question as I have yet to put mine on. I'm doing the Jedi bucket, but the last time I tried to do kill makrs, the paint bled through and made a mess. How do I keep the paint from bleeding through the tape?

    I drew the kill marks on the helmet then painted them by hand

    Are you airbrushing? or spray painting? Either way a light coat of clear over the masking tape will help seal it. Then spray a couple light coats of the paint as opposed to one heavy coat. I have used this technique on models for years with great results. Practice first.

    Good luck.
    Hope that helps.

    I went the route of of just painting the bounty marks on by hand
    Thanks to TK9O?'s templates as a guide
