  • Beadwork-residue tape remover

    Hi y'all

    I just wanted to pass this technique on to you peeps that restore beadwork. This is a new product on the market for removing that old duct tape residue on the back of beadwork. I do restorative work on beadwork. Anyway I bought some beaded legging last year and decided to put a new look to it. I visually inspected the leggings and found that the maker of the leggings had duct taped the back of the beadwork. After much removal of some old duct tape on the leggings I proceeded to give it a bath in baby laundry detergent. After much washing and not getting anywhere with the removal of the gluey residue. My wife gladly informed me that there is a product available that removes adhesive on surfaces.

    I am not advocating or selling this product, but it worked for me. It is 100% organic and biodegradable. It is called De-Solv-it http://www.orange-sol.com

    There is a caution though with some beads it will remove the shiny surface. Especially on those painted gold colored beads. I will use this with only solid colors. Try it on a small area first before proceeding with larger areas. Thats is all

      That is big roger and that one. I was giving the option for those of us that need the work done yesterday. I have come across hot glued beadwork on several different beadwork regalia items though. Mostly I see the duct tape option used the most. I personally prefer to do it the right way the first time. Although, when you are stretched for time the temptation to take a shortcut is mighty tempting. Thank you

              the hot glue is easy to figure out

              you just glue the string of beads on with the glue but the duct tape thingee i
              can't seem to get right? do u sew the string of beads onto the sticky side
              of the duct tape? then how do u lengthen the bead work?
              it's been a long time, shouldn't have left u.

                  i think the user just duct taped the back side of the finished legging instead using for example leather or cloth as a finishing touch - which i think is just plain lazy!!

                  but as for the hot glue i'm not sure - hot glued the edges of the finishing material to the backside of the finished item?!?

                  but i could be wrong though

                    Me niether! LOL..DUCT TAPE will ruin your whole project...eww...prolly getz all sweaty and gooey too... I say stick to a lil flour/water light glue mixture and some o hu bi jo o'lady cotton material...stick it on and whipstitch the edge...heck then bead the edge if you want to....it will have a much nicer finished look to it and if you need to repair....much easier to work with. I wouldnt touch tha duct tape thing?!!

                    A nice finish will make or break a neat clean project....dont get lazy when your puttin the finishing touches....it will ruin all of the effort and time you have already put into it....thaz my 2 cents.

                        by Suzizila
                        Has anyone ever seen raised beadwork on anything other than whimsies and glenngary(sp?) hats? I'm thinking of attempting to do some for a beaded set I want to work on. How well do you think it would last on leggings and a vest? Am I right in thinking that it is a row (line) of beads covered with...

                        Long Term Effects of Backing Beadwork
                        by TallmanFL
                        I have seen many others that have dopne their beadwork on index cards and even paper? I have always used canvas and have usually used interfacing behind that.

                        My question is has anyone had any long term problems with beadwork done on index cards or paper? Does the beadwork fall apart?...
