One of these days, I'm gonna pick up my kid's math book from school and there - on the cover - will be a full size photo one of HM's Tape Creations.

Outstanding craftsmanship.

HM is way too patient and clever.

Very nice multiple light-sources photograph. Shows off the color scheme nicely.

Thanks, it worked a bit better on the second than the first. I may have to try again when I photograph the third one.

Here's another take on the first one:



And here's the third one. It's similar to the other two in shape, but the concave pentagons are as wide as the convex ones, making hollow areas on each face of the dodecahedron.

A tapecraft wedding present for my sister. It's a rhombic enneacontahedron with the diamond-shaped faces replaced by pyramids with equilateral triangles for faces:

Very nice! It looks like a bunch of little five point stars linked together.

Thanks! There are 12 5-pointed stars, and where they meet they make 6-pointed stars. Each 5-pointed star has all five colors, and each 6-pointed star has three.

That would be really awesome on a Christmas tree. Especially if you could figure out how to light it up from the inside.

I've done a few lit ones, but not recently.

Happy Monkey,
I just saw that 3M is doing a contest for Scotch tape sculptures. Dude, this has you written all over it. You have to enter. Then we can all go there and vote for you. $5000 grand prize, and a case of tape.

http://www.offtherollcontest.com/main/home.aspx

part of the rules:

Quote:
# 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;
# Up to 10% of the Sculpture/Entry may include other materials to support or enhance the sculpture and is limited to wire, cardboard, paint, lighting, wood, fabric and plastic. It may not include words or other objects;
