It is called "PAINTER'S TAPE," right?

Ok, this is nearly impossible to Google: Is masking tape/painter's tape easy to paint over? On purpose?

I have a Halloween prop I'm making, and since I lacked white masking tape I just wrapped the whole thing in blue painter's tape. Call it a lazy man's papier-mache. But this prop is not meant to be blue, it's meant to be pink (and a bunch of other colors). Can I paint directly over this tape with acrylics, or any other kind of paint?
I know that when I paint walls and things with latex paint, it definitely sticks to painter's tape, but then I just throw it away. I've never left it to see if the paint stuck to it and was permanent. Since I'll be potentially roughing up this prop, I don't want the paint to slough off easily.
