Rigid Wrap - Question

Posted by silvamae (My Page) on

Nicethyme and anyone else who wants to answer - I have another mannequin to do and it is made of that really hard, tough, slick, white plastic. Do you think I need to wrap it first? Is the reason for wrapping it so that the tess will stay attached better?

I use wrap when the substrate may not be stiff enough. Your project sounds like you really need to score it to give it tooth, maybe test out a gritty sandpaper and see if you can scuff it up

Okay, good to know. My project is totally solid and secure, but quite slick. So I will score it or scratch it, maybe with a coarse sandpaper. THANKS!
