    Cloth tape question

    So i just got some nice dark purple newbaums cloth tape, and wanted to make it keep its color for awhile, and not have to replace it in a few months like you do with many cloth tapes. I have shellacked other bars wrapped in cloth tape. i tried putting zissner clear shellac on the purple tape, but the color was too dark for my taste, almost black. anyone got any ideas on how to keep the color from fading without shellac? or maybe i could thin the shellac with some denatured alcohol to try and make it not as dark? any ideas would be great. thanks
