Best way to attach watercolor paper to a mat
from Sandy, OR
Comments about Lineco Acid-Free Gummed Linen Tape:
This tape works very well. I run a damp sponge over the gummed side and after putting the tape in place lightly rub it down with a handkerchief followed by running my thumbnail along the edge of the paper to get a good join. If I need to remove it I use an exacto knife and don't worry about the bit of tape left on.In the years I have used this product it has never come loose.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This tape is perfect for mounting works on paper
from Concord, NH
I work on paper mostly doing w/c painting and monotypes. I needed some tape to hinge the work onto an acid free backing. Very nice tape.
the tape did not adhere well to water color paper
By C A M
from fairview, Oregon
I do not hinge with it but apply to paper and mat directly, as in monotypes, and so it may be that this product is not made to do that. Paper tape works great, but I did not find that product in the catalog. The glue just did not work on several papers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A must for my process
By Animal advocate
I use this paper to design my image using vine charcoal. When I finish my image, I spray my drawing so it wont smudge, then I trace my drawing on the back of the same paper. This allows me to position my drawing on my permanent drawing paper, and rub slightly to transfer it. It is perfect for design and placement without making marks that can't be removed later.
from Temple, TX.
I repaired a book binding with this. It worked although I probably should have order a wider tape.
It's the greatest linen tape
This tape is wonderful for mounting watercolor paper to mats. Also great for hinging mata to backing for framing purposes. Is so easy to use, just cut the size you need, dampen and mount. No waste. Best value for the price.

Solid Good Product
By Artgirl 19
from Gallup NM
For over 25 years I have used this tape to secure watercolor paintingsand drawings to the backing board. It is a good, solid product.
Not sticky at all
By Luke Momjian
from Philadelphia, PA
I don't know if I was doing anything wrong, but this tape was completely unusable. I lightly soaked it with water, as instructed, but it was still far too weak to use at all.
Merchant response: Gummed tape requires very little water, just a light misting or quick moistening with a sponge will do. Lay the tape down add weight and allow to dry. The tape will not fully adhere until it has completely dried. If you need further assistance, please feel welcome to contact our Product Experts at 1-800-933-2542.
Watch those drying times...
from Washington DC
The tape and paper are fantastic. They do the job as advertised. Just be sure to wait for the gummed tape to fully adhere to the paper or mat. Weighting it is important. But am planning to buy more... much more
