I begin with full size drawings (cartoons). I trace the drawings and tranfer them to Clayboard with carbon paper. In the case of multiple images I use different colored carbon paper. I then glue yarn of different weights, colors and material to the Clayboard using

Elmer’s Glue. I use cotton, silk, linen and rayon yarns. The finished picture is sealed with Fabric Guard. The final step is the frame which I mill and build in my wood shop.
