A range of tapes are available including gumstrip, framer's, masking, low-tack and more!
Important note! Gumstrip tape is particularly sensitive. When wetting it only web the sticky side and not the whole tape. Doing so will cause it to peel off as it dries.
One way to do this is by running the gummed tape along a damp sponge pad that is placed in a shallow tub or dish of a similar size.
