Is there a trend you can see? When I first started out 30 years ago we HAD to have the tin foil type background.. OMG!

if it's a constant drip it will thin that area of paint enough that it will start to loose adhesion against the glass and start to lift off, but the occasional drip will not affect the paint at all.
