And to answer the original question, give the base coat a day to dry. If the tape still pulls paint off the wall you have a much bigger job than just striping.

I got side tracked in the middle of reading the post, came back to it a while later, answered the question and realized I was just repeating others previous advice. Unfortunately I couldn't remove my post. Was hoping you sr. members would let it slide this time...
