Duct tape or painter’s tape! It works great! I always have some on hand, but I don’t use one specifically because it can get messy. When using duct tape, place it on the area of your sketch, then just press firmly with the pressure of a hammer to flatten out the edges of the piece. Use the same approach to clean up that area as you would with wet tissue paper.
What sort of materials are needed? How long will it take them to complete it?
I like to start by cutting a piece of 3/4 inch (1 centimeter) thick, white, non-stainable electrical tape with a double-sided adhesive that is about .3 inches wide and about one foot long. Then, add the color and design you want in white, then attach it to the piece of tape. Do the same with the back side of the tape, then add the design you want on the other side. As soon as you have all layers covered, place on a table, and it should do the trick!
Can I use a brush and paint to complete it instead of using duct tape?
I’ve used a brush in past projects, but since it tends to cause bubbles and other small imperfections, I usually tape my pieces before adding it with a thin, white tape.
Can I get it more precise? I don’t want to cut it myself. It’s too perfect and too soft.
When should we start to go through sketches? Does it really take so long?
You should have it ready to go by the beginning of the second week of classes. If you don’t, start out with something small and get it as rough as possible, then add more details, like detail lines or lines/slides, and the work will become easier every week.
How many pieces should I sketch? How much space is enough?
Depending on the complexity of the project, the more pieces you have sketched out can be a huge help. For sketches without much detail or even some basic lines, you can always get them as rough and simple as possible. To get things on the lighter side, or if you’re just getting started or if you don’t have much sketching experience, keep sketches as brief as possible, so you can see how the process is going.
