One of the biggest tips I can give you for cutting liquid mask is to cut the very tip off of your exacto knife. In other words, install a fresh blade and using a pair of wire cutters, cut the tip of the blade off so there is no more point at the end.
Also, the closer you hold the knife to parallel with the surface the straighter your lines will be.

I would have used tape for this,liquid mask seems overboard. But I like the design of it and now you can run it and paint another one.
