Kneepads are essential for rollerblading, skateboarding, hockey and other sports. Use Expressions Packaging Tape* and Expressions Magic™ Tape* to add a fun pattern or team colors to this basic piece of equipment.
*May damage some substrates upon removal.
Clean and dry surface and brainstorm a pattern.
Apply base color of Expressions Magic™ Tape in three layers. Trim excess with the hobby knife or scissors. Burnish with fingers or burnisher.
Apply accent color of Expressions Magic™ Tape in a starburst formation, overlapping an X shape that is thinner in the center and fans out around the sides. Trim and burnish.
Apply small squares of color in the center of the starburst to punch up the design. Burnish.
Create an accent touch by applying patterned tape near the kneepads’ closure straps.
EXPERT TIP: Apply the tape at a diagonal to minimize wrinkles.
