Masking tapes, or Washi tapes, are colourful adhesive tapes made from rice paper that have a multitude of uses because of their appearance and workmanship. They can be torn by hand, will stick to practically any surface, leave no traces when removed and can be written on. What more could you ask for?
mt Slim is the particularly narrow version of these tapes that comes in packs of 3 that lend themselves to the purposes of designing, crafting, marking or packaging. The mt Slim Twist Cord version of this tape look like a colourful cord and are perfect for making packages or gifts that much more attractive.
This was really a case of love at first sight these beautiful and colourful masking tapes from Japan captured our hearts at the first sighting! Just how many uses can a person come up with? The possibilities seem almost unlimited.
The Japanese company Kamoi, which has been famous since 1923 for its fly paper and masking tapes for industrial and building trade use, introduced this new style of masking tape to the Japanese market in 2007 after being the only company from among many that saw the potential of this idea as presented to them by three very creative women. The women were right: within three years these tapes achieved a kind of cult status in Japan.
The masking tape (mt) is not only great looking but turns out to be very functional as well. The fact that it is made out of rice paper means that it can be written or drawn on by every type of pen. It can be easily torn by hand but also fits in most roll dispensers designed for small standard adhesive tapes. The adhesive itself is configured in such a way that it will not only stick on paper but functions equally as well on surfaces which actually deviate from total smoothness, including even walls. It is easy to remove and leaves not a trace of residue on a paper or a wall where it had been attached and can even be subsequently reused. This, of course, widens the range of its possible uses immeasurably. For example, as a means of decorating an apartment, giving walls a new look, making lamp shades, attaching reminders on a wall; gifts can of course be wrapped with such a decorative tape or it can simply be used as a sticker on letters or pages that can then be stuck on the refrigerator or in a notebook. It is also great for childrens handicrafts because it is so easy to work with and even more so because there can be no spilling or smearing or unwanted glue.
The surface of the tape is water repellent, which is not to say waterproof. Note: the adhesive coating reacts negatively to moisture. However, for things like making individual designs on party mugs or short-term lettering on display windows or other uses where only a temporary and small amount of moisture is involved, this product works fine. Too much light and heat can affect the adhesive attributes of the tape and thereby negatively influence its removability. Very interesting effects can be achieved by taping the light coloured tapes, which are particularly transparent, over lettering, drawings or printed materials.
