Re: [teacherartexchange] Tape Sculptures

I did this with 9 high school girls and we went through appx. 3 rolls per
student, as well every partial roll I had. Course some of the girls did
theirs really thick, and one of them forgot she did her right leg so I have
an extra one in my display case! I found out later that you can use saran
wrap for the first layer, eliminating the need for the "sticky side out
first tape layer". And yes, the cheap-o stuff works great -in my opinion it
was better!

Don't argue with stupid people.
They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
