View Full Version : offering odd ephemera

These are the cards, I offer both the grain tickets and the 3" x 5" dividers (great for rolos). Obviously I have a lot more grain tickets than divider cards, I'll repost when I run out but I have literally thousands of these.
^^ still available

watercolor paper tape. It only comes in hugemongous rolls, if you would like to try it I'm happy to roll off a couple or five yards for you.
A Crop-o-Dile: gently used, good condition, pink handles. I bought the Big Bite & don't need two.
9 pocket card sleeve pages: self explanatory

Things I would like to swap for:
-postage stamps: new, used domestic, foreign, I don't care
-ATC's by you :)
-anything ballerina/ little girl dancers: paper, stickers, charms, whatever. Stuff I can either give to or make gifts from for my children.
-broken jewelry or watches (if they are not digital), the older the better (obviously not precious metals)
- anything with black Labrador Retrievers

what is watercolor paper tape?

07-09-2009, 09:13 AM
It's a brown paper tape that once you wet it becomes sticky and is perfect for mounting watercolor paper to a board for painting. when you do larger works it's pretty much a requirement as buckling and warping can really screw things up. Because it's just paper it doesn't ruin the watercolor paper underneath, you just gently soak it with a wet sponge and it slides off giving you a nice clean edge for mounting. The glue is very much like old lick & stick postage stamps, get it too wet & the glue washes off and you just have strips of brown paper.

It is also the tape of choice for making a custom dress form (as opposed to duct tape which more people use because they don't know where to find paper tape).
