Mummification is a specialized form of bondage and sensory deprivation which involves wrapping the subject in some material or combination of materials. Mummification can be either quite severe or relatively gentle and comfortable, depending on the materials and techniques used. Regardless of severity, it tends to be one of the more involved “scenes,” as a full body wrap takes quite a long time to accomplish. But for those who enjoy it, it’s definitely worth the time and effort! Most people associate mummification with full body wraps, but the same techniques can be used on isolated body parts. For example, an electrical tape “head wrap” serves as an interesting and potentially severe hood, while arm or leg wraps can quickly immobilize a submissive.

The general idea is simple: you’re going to make a mummy, rather like what you remember from those old black-and-white horror movies. This is done by wrapping material around the submissive’s body. How you go about it will depend on your goals. For a gentle, comfortable wrap, you could use elastic bandages. If you want this to be more about bondage and helplessness, use duct tape over pallet wrap, wrapping the legs together and the arms against the body. For sensory deprivation, wrap each limb separately before doing an over-wrap… and you might consider inserting foam ear plugs before you wrap the head and cut off the mummy’s eyesight.

Some materials are fairly common in mummification, and they can be broken down into a few broad classes:

Plastic

Plastic is excellent for mummification, because it’s relatively easy to work with and tends to stick to itself. Since it doesn’t stick to skin (much), it can be used directly on the body, and is often the first layer of a more intense wrap. The down side is that it doesn’t “breath,” so it’s not the most comfortable material for the person being wrapped. (On the other hand, some folks love that damp sweaty sensation!)

Kitchen Plastic Wrap – Known as “cling film” in the UK, different brands have different characteristics. Saran WrapTM, for example, is fairly thick and won’t stretch far before it breaks, but it sticks to itself tenaciously. Dow Handi-WrapTM, on the other hand, is thinner and stretches more. Plastic wrap is now available in colors, and you can do some interesting “decorative” wraps by overlaying different colors.

Pallet Wrap – Also known as “banding fim” in the narrower sizes, this is a usually heavier gauge, stretchy plastic that is used to wrap boxes to shipping pallets (among other uses). It’s available in narrow rolls that are easier to use around the curves and angles of the body, as well as wide rolls for quick over-wrapping. Pallet wrap is available in colors including black, but most mail-order sources want you to buy a case at a time. Narrow rolls of green and clear are usually available at hardware stores and U-Haul locations.

Shrink Wrap – Not to be confused with pallet wrap, shrink wrap doesn’t stretch much, if any. After it’s applied, heat is applied (with a blow drier, for example) and the film shrinks, clinching whatever (or whoever!) is underneath.

Tape

Tape has an adhesive backing of course, so it stays where you put it… good for mummification. Since tape also adheres to skin and hair, you’ll generally use tape as an overwrap, with something a bit less aggressive underneath. Most tapes don’t “breath” so, again, this isn’t the most comfortable wrap.

Duct Tape – The staple of mummification fans! Many, many wraps are done with duct tape over pallet wrap. It’s wide (so you get a lot done with each pass), it’s relatively attractive (standard gray duct tape makes a sort of shiny silver mummy, and it’s available in colors as well), it’s inexpensive, and it’s readily available at any hardware store. Duct tape doesn’t stretch, so you have to take some
care in applying it.

Electrical Tape – Made of vinyl, electrical tape (or upholstery repair tape) stretches to some degree and is available in bright colors. Some of the more expensive brands have an adhesive that’s well-behaved enough to use directly on the skin. Because the tape is narrow, it’s excellent for oddly shaped areas like the head, or where there are a lot of curves, like around the fingers.

Aisle Marking Tape – Not flexible and workable like duct tape, and not stretchy and narrow like electrical tape, aisle marking tape has one redeeming characteristic: it comes in stripes! Diagonal stripes of black and yellow, black and white, or red and white are used to mark off various industrial hazard areas. If you want a “Christmas candy cane” mummy, you’ll have to painstakingly apply spirals of red and white duct tape. Aisle marking tape, though, can give you the color scheme and the general “feel” of that… or of a bumblebee!

As long as we’re talking about this sort of thing, don’t overlook “message tape,” which is typically used to seal cartons. It doesn’t stretch and is difficult to work with… but think how appropriate it would be to wrap your mummy with tape that says FRAGILE – Handle with Care!

Packing Tape – Plastic packing tape doesn’t stretch and is very thin and tenacious… plus it tends to tear. It’s difficult to work with and isn’t very “pretty,” but it will do in a pinch. It’s available in a number of colors including light tan and absolutely crystal clear.

Metal Duct Seam Tape – This is literally a strip of thin metal with an adhesive backing. It wrinkles badly and, once wrinkled, you can’t smooth it out again. But it makes a nice accent if you’re doing “artistic” mummification!

Bandages

Bandages can be used directly on the skin and, for the most part, aren’t sticky (VetrapTM is a wonderful exception). Since bandages “breath,” the submissive will find these more comfortable than some other materials. You can even wrap the head completely, since air will pass through the bandage. Unless you use multiple layers, bandages allow a lot of freedom of movement for the mummy, which again means more comfort. Plus, bandages can be used over and over again, reducing the costs of mummification. The down side is that it’s tougher to keep the wrap in place as the bandages will tend to slip and slide (again, VetrapTM is an exception).

Gauze – This is probably as close as you can get to the classic “horror film mummy” look! Gauze doesn’t stretch much at all, but if you want an effect of “The Mummy Walks” for Halloween, this is a great way to go. Since gauze is very absorbent, it’s a useful base layer for encasement scenes (a relative of mummification) with, for example, hot wax or plaster of paris.

Elastic Bandages – Ace is probably the best-known brand. The simplest elastic bandage is just a strip of stretchy cloth. Some varieties have a bit of “tack” to their ends and will stick to itself; these are a bit easier to use. Elastic bandages usually come in a rough approximation of flesh tone.

VetrapTM – A wonderful product from 3M that comes in gorgeous colors like hot pink, purple, red, black… you name it, they probably make it. This material looks and feels more like crepe paper than anything else. It clings to itself marvelously, but doesn’t stick to other materials. It comes in narrow rolls and is excellent for wrapping the head or anywhere there are a lot of tight curves. It’s available from veterinary supply stores and often at tack shops.

Pre-WrapTM – This is a very thin, velvety-soft foam that is used in athletics under other wraps. It tends to cling to itself but doesn’t really “stick”. It can give an interesting milky, “filmy” look, but isn’t quite as comfortable as fabric.

SpandexTM – Nothing stretches like LycraTM. It breaths, and is available in fluorescent colors. The down side is that Lycra is fairly expensive, and it’s very “slippery,” so expect problems keeping the wrapping in place.

Cloth Strips – While cloth (like SpandexTM, mentioned above) isn’t the easiest thing to work with, it does open you up to a wide range of colors, patterns, and textures. If you have an old, worn bed sheet that’s about to head for the rag bag, try tearing it into strips and experimenting with it. If you want to try this variant, save it for a nice warm environment to reduce the risks from the chill of evaporation.
