Default Masking on a curve?

Just curious, is there a masking tape that stretches and allows for a smooth curve?

Not that I know of. But there are sheets of that you can cut into a curve:
Mask It Film (masking film)

Or, what I do is use a post-it and cut into a curve shape. But that's if the curve isn't too big.

I don't know of one either, but if there is such a thing I'd like to hear about it.

As far as I am concerned, you just have to cut the curve into the mask. I use plain inkjet paper and Dotto for a lot of my masks, and I save them for as long as they are usable. I have a folder full of inky inkjet paper masks.

I should probably break down and get some actual masking film. Then they would last longer. I wish the Eclipse masking tape would be available in those wide rolls again. I don't see it anywhere online.

I was painting the curved white stripes on a football I cut from a template. The football's paper was a nubby texture meant to resemble football leather. Trimming some Frisket didn't work for me (probably because of the nubbiness); the paint got under the Frisket. Couldn't come up with anything but hand painting the white strip edge, and it looks a bit sloppy. I didn't want to adhere white paper strips because they wouldn't pick up the nubby paper texture. Glad to be done with those cards!

You might try masking fluid. I have even used rubber cement as a mask. Didn't know you were working on a texture. Definitely more difficult!

Here is a link to a post where the gal cuts little slits in foam tape to make it follow a curve. Maybe you could use this technique. Scroll down a bit to see:
