daveq Posted April 23, 2004 Report Share Posted April 23, 2004 I have not done a natural binding type of fiinish before but am in the process of doing one now. I have three or four different brands/types of maksing tape. Some green 3M, one thin latex (I think it's latex) tape, some purple painters tape and the usualt blue painters tape. I think the latex tape is the type that Dan Erlewine recommends but the stuff I have doesn't have much tack to it at all. It tends to want to fall off easily - even after pressing it on with a burnisher. The green 3M tape has a good tack but when I tried it, it didn't seem to do very well in keeping the dye from seeping beneath it. What tape do you use? I'm guessing that I'm still going to have at least one spot (if not more) where I get a little bit of seepage. What's the best way to get rid of it? Once both the body and top have been dyed - I think sanding will be difficult since I'd likely remove some of the dye on the body while trying to get rid of the spot. I think I saw a stewmac tutorial where Dan Erlewine used a razor blade/scraper but I don't know if that's right or not? Maybe I'm wrong - does a good masking job always result in no problems at all?
