Best of Office Weekly Round Up: Best Duct Tape Art
Duct tape is such a versatile tool. It has so many uses for so many different things. It can even be used to create the type of artwork that reminds you that humans can really think up the wildest things and make it a reality. In this week’s roundup, we look at some neat duct tape art masterpieces. Now that’s a wrap!
Artist Vincent Ricottilli makes heavy use of duct tape in his art, and his pieces, like this one, take anywhere from 7-10 hours spread over a couple of days to complete. And who can argue with the results as these two tough superheroes brawling it out over who has the better mask?
Wanna liven up your next game of paintball? Derek Ross knows how to do just that with this duct tape vest made with painstaking detail to look like a lion. Your foes will know that you are not a paintballer to be trifled with.
Star Wars will always have a dedicated fan base, and we all know that these guys love to show their, well, love for the franchise. Take this one fan that made a life-sized version of an AT-AT and then put it up for sale on e-bay for $400. The outer layer is duct tape over a wooden frame with illustrations made from sharpie. Oh, and it’s going to run you an additional $280 for shipping in the U.S.
Jeremy Tubbs made a very life-like image here of a Subway train. He used multiple layers to create this piece. It almost looks like the train is heading into your room!

The amount of detail in this 3D piece of art is amazing, to say the least. If we wanted something like this done, we would hire Jiminy Cricket for the job.
Picture this: It’s Valentine’s day, you’re about to meet up with your other half soon, but you forgot to get flowers. The solution? Get a bunch of duct tape and model it like flowers!
The plumber who’s fame for rescuing Princess Peach eclipses his actual profession (when’s the last time you saw Mario fix a pipe?) has been immortalized here in all his 8-bit glory. Now this is a piece of art that is more our speed in terms of difficulty.
So the next time you grab a roll of duct tape to close up a box or fix a leaky hose, remember that you’re not just holding a useful tool, but you’re also holding a weapon of mass creation.
