not having that problem.... as you see it's now into the 400s and only 60ish behind the crapeze

My friends "the alphabet" are currently sharing MB's genius with their Double Alphabet siblings. I expect their votes will start pouring in any time now

Do they make colored packaging tape?

Entrant must demonstrate that the sculpture subject of the Entry was created using Scotch® Premium Performance Packaging Tape #3850 or, alternatively, Scotch® High Performance Packaging Tape #3500/3501. The amount of Scotch® Packaging Tape used to create the sculpture must be 90% or higher;

They make permanent markers.

And, while I appreciate the voting efforts, I might suggest keeping the "friends" to a dull roar. I don't see anything in the rules, but I'd hate to be disqualified, or to leave a bad taste in the judges' mouths when they tally votes...

Ah, they do make permanent markers. I've "glazed" paper-mâché with elmer's glue and markers.

One of the other sculptures has clearly more than 10% of the mass of the thing made up of pebbles used as ballast. It should be disqualified. Also, the cricket bat one uses a ball that clearly has more mass than the entire tape sculpture itself. One has rope lighting all winding around in it. Each of them uses materials other than tape that would be more then 10% of the mass of the thing.

When I was building mine, people suggested lighting it. One factor in deciding not to do that was the time and complication involved, but another was the fact that it doesn't take much material to weigh more than 10% more than tape.

I used a fair bit of permanent ink, but I think I'm safely below the 10% mark...

That's dishonest, you ballot box stuffing conservative. :p Besides, I'm not going to plug in somebody else's email and have them get spammed. The voting also only counts 10%, and if the judges find out the email addresses are not valid, HM may suffer in the judging.
