Today I am excited to be reviewing the book “Duct Tape: 101 Adventurous Ideas for Art, Jewelry, Flowers, Wallets and More by Forest Walker Davis.”
To start with, here’s a little bit about it: “Move beyond the wallet with an inspiring collection of exciting duct tape projects!
Sturdy and resistant, and with a myriad of interesting colors and patterns, duct tape is fast becoming a perfect crafting, home and DIY material.
Duct Tape introduces the simple but versatile material and offers 101 creative projects to make. Each project is fully illustrated and contains easy-to-follow instructions for creating inexpensive craft projects of the utmost quality and aesthetic.”
The Tape Guy (Forest Walker Davis) has a fantastic list of tools you’ll need to start making duct tape crafts. How to do basic techniques, like folding tape, making sheets, etc.
There are tutorials for creating the common projects, like wallets and flowers as well as lots and lots of inspiration for more interesting projects! While he doesn’t provide you with step by step tutorials for all of the projects in the book, he gives you the tutorials for the classic fold and how you can turn those into projects and art.
A favorite quote from the book (from the foreword) is this: “You spot it from across the store: perfect, bright, and colorful rolls, neatly stacked or playfully jumbled in an oversized bin. It’s eye candy drawing you in, and the need to touch it overwhelms you.” I love that, it could apply to so many crafty supplies, right?
Overall, I think this book is fantastic for anyone wanting to get started in Duct Tape crafts! Find the book on Amazon here.
