    so im wondering, if say im spraying some area, to say get some pin stripes or solid color and i taped off an area to help cover the area where the boundaries of color are.

    i notice that sometimes paint gunk up at the edge of teh paint. so say i had a primed white figure, and i taped off area where i want to keep white, and im spraying blue. then after a day i take the tape off, the blue paint at some part on the boundary where the tape was gunked up..

    any solutions or methods to getting around this?

    Spray lighter coats. That's the only way I know of. As soon as you spray a bit too much and it starts running, the capillary action will draw the wet paint into every tiny fold in the tape, and you either get ruined lines or big paint chunks.
