Some of you may recall previous posts/facebook conversations where I expressed my frustration at finding an affordable solution to my foam padding issue. I like to use it in sheets as opposed to dots etc. I find using it on larger areas behind an image, provides more support and a really nice feel.
Wet glues.. too wet… large areas=wet warp ….ugg, my other tape runner… love it… but not strong enough for the foam. But NOW…. I think I found one solution, well …. technically….it found me…. Kuretake Photo Tape.
I got this sent to me to play around with by my friends at ImageAbility. Over the months we’ve discussed various crafting frustrations I have, they have a wide selection of products through the various departments… and I’m crazy enough to find a solution where it wasn’t intended lol. I’m not sure he had this particular issue in mind when he sent it… but I am sooo glad he did.
At first glance I thought this was going to be another one of those 3 swipes you are out kinda little tape runners. But on closer inspection… it has as much tape as my big Mega Runner …. 32 meters (about 105 feet!) of 10mm wide tape.
The Kuretake Photo Tape dispenser is one of the small “in your hand” variety, but don’t be fooled… it’s got staying power.
I was convinced when I saw it that it would be just as hard to get it to work on foam as everything else I have tried… but I guess either the mesh design makes a difference, or the tape is stronger than I am used to. I did a test piece when I first got it and it’s stuck on their real good.
If you have been struggling with specific papers, card or materials… and your everyday tape runners just aren’t cutting it…. you might want to give this a look see.
