  1. Could I go over it with paint or something to give it a newspaper print look?

  4. I tried this, but when cut off me, the tape unstuck from the fabric of the undershirt and stuck to itself to the point that I could not straighten it back out. Had to throw it away.

    1. There is more than one grade of duct tape. Some of it is not quite as sticky as some others. Find the stickiest you can get. Also, the tape must be pressed firmly into the fabric with at least two to three overlapping layers over the whole thing for stiffness so it does not come apart when removing. Tape can and should overlap in different directions for structural strength until it is filled. Longish pieces are better than short ones. Also, many people do not think to tape around the waist and underbust first so the breasts come out well-defined like on this example. The second step is to cross the tape in an "X" between the breasts, making sure it lays flat against the body. After removal, filling the form has additional steps to make sure it stays the corresponding measurements as to the thickness one is front to back, not just the total circumference around. There are a lot of needed instructions not written here. Check for other "make your own dressform" tutorials on Pinterest of by using Google search.
