Are you getting them that smooth with metallic mylar tape and practice?
I've been trying with this tape - argh :)
Thanks for the encouragement!
Yup, practice, practice!! In my experience the holographic tapes are the hardest to do, but still very much do-able.... I made one a couple of weeks ago. I just made a set of teeny mini's in solid green sequins last night!!
One thing I do to make sure I'm laying down the tape right is to keep the backing on the tape and make a couple of loops around the pipe to see how the angle needs to be. When you figure out where the tape needs to start, take a pair of sissors (or something with a sharp edge) and trace a line an inch or so along the edge of the tape, marking where it is laying. Then when you actually start taping it, use the line as your starting guide! As long as you don't stretch the tape it should flow right along!!
Wow. Marking the angle is a great idea. I never would have thought of that. I just try to remember how it was. Can't wait to try this.
what a pretty hoop!
What are the names of your colors and where did you buy them? The pink looks almost like neon coral and is gorgeous!
