English term or phrase: feather up
The arch in the masking paper allows the overspray of base and clear to ***feather up*** the sail as shown in this picture, which helps to avoid a hard paint edge.

Desafortunadamente, no tengo acceso a la imagen que podría explicarme mejor de qué se trata el proceso. Muchas gracias de antemano.
