I don't hold out much hope of anyone being able to help me as i have SEARCHED and SEARCHED the internet (and I'm usually pretty good at searching!!!).
I have some old pictures of my grandparents from during the war that my mum gave me. They were framed in glass surrounded by some sort of papery black tape. My mother, in her wisdom, decided to take them apart to get them copied then had someone reframe them. The person has used what in the UK we call gaffer tape (black shiny plasticky tape that is really sticky on the back and leaves an awful sticky residue on stuff). I didn't really realise and hung them on my wall but the glass has started to slip out and the tape is coming away. Now upon inspection this tape looks really tacky anyway aswell as all coming apart and the framing guy seems to have also trapped some "foreign bodies" between the frames too!!!
Unhappily the guy has retired and disappeared so even if I wanted to I could not take them back there.
I REALLY want to sort them out myself but cannot find the correct sort of tape to use. Has anyone any ideas?
