Sorry Dave.....
Yeah, the paint is over sprayed on the edge. I find that if you keep it masked right at the mould edge, you risk "tearing" the paint skin because there is not much adhesion to the mould due to the release agent.

Making bladders is best demonstrated by Adam in his video....

Got way-laid this weekend with repairs....
I did redo the GF's nose as I wasn't happy with some of the rounded edges.
So,
Build-up, cure, sand down
Another built up layer
Sand
And so on.....
I also had to cut a hole in the cone tip as the bladder thingy gets in the way!
