One day we’ll find a scrim to be proud of , there’s that many out there , keep searching, we’ll find it

Or we could all swap to paper tape :maraca:

Why hasn't someone started to manufacture an actual self adhesive tape, not a scrim, to use on joints?
How hard can it be?

There is one andy its a paper tape with glue that you just run a wet sponge over or dip in water, it sticks very quickly and ready to skim in 15 minutes. Wet-n-stick ive used before but this is a newer one.

Orange is good .wots the blue one for .and I keep forgetting to order the sticky pink one from wack. When I was younger I used to rub spunk on it to make it extra sticky. But now I'm knocking on a bit , it just comes out in thick lumps .️ . Im in Ibiza as said. We just had a bunk up , no kissing. No licking. Straight in .we kept our glasses on , I got dressed and came to the bar. To wait.thats romance after 35years. Lucky bitch.
