A product worth sticking with!
from Pasadena, MD
I bought the lightly tacky, but removable tape to secure paper board to my mat when using ScanNCut. Scotch Low Tack Artist tape has a heavy enough paper backing to handle with enough tack to hold securely. I can easily remove the tape without tearing the paper board when complete. I love the product and would recommend it to others who want to secure art work and be able to remove it without damage to the art.
i would buy this product again-exactly what i was looking fo
from LONDONDERRY, NH
HI-WHEN I DRAW SOMETHING ON TRACING PAPER, THAT I WANT TOPAINT OR PUT IN ONE OF MY JOURNALS--THIS TAPE IS PERFECT--I AM NOT CONCERNED THAT I WILL TEAR MY WATERCOLOR PAPER--OR WHATEVER PAPER I WANT THE DRAWING ON...."JUST USE THE TAPE"
It's easy to use
It causes no damage to a paper, easy to use, keeps your paper in place.
will not buy this again
By Lucy MT
This tape is useless I taped down a dry watercolor (a very good quality brand) 1/2 sheet 22" x 15" on all 4 sides (2 strips on each side even), and a few minutes later when I picked it up to paint it had completely come off my foamboard. So I had to secure it with a better artist brand tape I just happened to have some of it left, thank goodness. This tape is so low in tack it does not tape anything down.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bought this to use with transfer paper & tracing paper, etc. I also bought the "Scotch Artist Tape for Canvas" (same brand), to compare the two. This "Low Tack Artist Tape" definitely has much lower tack, which is perfect for when you want that type of application. So for its use, this was the low-tack winner. Worked perfectly.

Just What I Needed
from East Coast, USA
I mainly work on hot press watercolor papers and canson illustration board. My issue with tape is I like to color block and the tape I would use would rip the paper. I've spent plenty on tape only to have it rip everytime. I just stared using it so I will adjust my review after using it more but so far so good.
A nearly perfect product
from Clermont, FL
Masking on paper is just effortless now. I use this Scotch3M type tape when I work on Arches/Canson oil painting paper (itself a near-perfect product!) so the combination is just a fabulous discovery. The tape is very, very low tack so it doesn't pull any of the paper's surface. You will need to press it firmly when applying it, and do so again just before painting to assure a well sealed edge. On low texture papers it will leave an extremely good masked area. I would never be without this!

Love this tape!
By Sketchbook Artist
from Clinton, CT
I've looked long and hard for this type of tape, and finally have found it. I've been looking for a tape to use in my sketchbook and nature journal work. A tape that I can use to create a picture plane to work within and have a nice clean border around watercolor or gouache sketches that does not rip up the surface of the paper. Regular artist tape,and drafting tape all ruin the paper because the adhesive is too strong. I generally work on heavy 180 lb. mixed- media paper both cold press and hot press surface, as well as watercolor paper both hot and cold press. This tape sticks well enough so that paint does not seep under it but removes cleanly and easily with no damage to the paper surface. It's also sticky enough to re-use on a second or third sketch during the same session.
