Wednesday Wonder- I love duct tape

In the early 80's we were driving to a how in Orange county and we saw a car that had duct tape all over it. Everything on this car was duct taped together. As we got closer there was a bumper sticker and it said "I love duct tape". I thought it was awesome. It was creatively done and even the bumper was taped on!

My youngest daughter, who has always been a trendsetter, duct taped her whole back pack, it look great.
It was amazing how many kids started doing stuff like that to their school supplies.
I loved it and her back pack was indestructible and almost waterproof, saved me money too!

Now there are all colors and prints in duct tape. I so want to buy them all every time I see them.
There are even How to books totally devoted to duct tape.
This my friend is a non-traditional art medium.

There are also all kinds art being made with duct tape

Duct Tape Art Winners: Melissa Walker (left) and Mariah Walton earned first prize in Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology's first Duct Tape Art Contest with their beautiful replication of �The Scream� painting -- all from strands of colored duct tape.
This is a contest from the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
"Getting the creative juices flowing was a Duct Tape Art Contest in early January, organized by the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences and sponsored by the 3-M Corporation"

The Duct Tape Guys even have a Duct Tape Gallery (this is great!)
You can even submit your own duct tape creations.

From the Duct tape guys Gallery. Tim fashioned this sportcoat for Red Green. He promptly said it was "the ugliest thing he had ever seen" and auctioned it off at a public television fund raiser. It brought $1000. (Heck, it was worth at least $2000!)
