Tape, Glorious Tape!
I was asked the most awesome random question today:
What is the best kind of tape for making a sculpture?
Now, they only gave my 150 characters- gah! Impossible. My full answer:
Well, I think mixing and matching is the best bet. Gaffer for strength and bulk, spike for detail and color, scotch for repairs, packing for texture, masking for novelty and paint lines, electrical to prevent sparks and mark wires (oh, there will be electricity involved, believe me) and duct for, well, you just gotta use duct tape!
