Packing Tape Art

Feeling inspired to create but can’t afford the materials?

Yes, paints and stuff are expensive, so go and rescue that sad and lonely reel of packing tape you’ve got stuffed in a drawer, pick off the bits of fluff and get to work.

Here’s the sort of thing you could be making.



The above are made from layers of tape stuck to plexiglass with light shining through.

I came across this fabulous art via Flavorpill’s Daily Dose, where my post on Charlotte Mann’s wall art was also featured {via a mention on  As a result my blog stats have gone through the roof and it’s been fascinating to watch my post go slightly viral, with people blogging about it, linking to it on Facebook, Tweeting it and posting it on other social networking sites.

Such things don’t normally happen round these parts, though I suspect it has slightly more to do with Charlotte Mann’s fabulous art than my sparkling prose.  Anyway, thanks all for the mentions and I do hope Charlotte is getting some nice juicy commissions as result.

OMG! Insanely original and wonderfully executed. For me this is juicier than the C. Mann concept. (Sorry Charlotte!) I saw a car the other day who's whole landau top was redone in blue painter's tape. It so worked! Maybe this is a trend. Much better than the spurious panicky uses for duct tape that were urged on us during the Bush years.
