A Duct Tape Happy Mistake

I didn't know duct tape would melt into this wonderful sealant. I was just creating a prototype stove pipe for a mini wood burner, basically to see if it would draw, and how much heat it would produce.
I had to hold two coffee cans together, just temporarily, and I did it outside, with buckets of water nearby should things get out of control.

Bottom line, it drew well, but holy cow, I had flames coming out the pipe end. When it was out, I discovered this really cool pattern created by the duct tape. And, it was glued for eternity, or so it seems now.
