PLE Lower Saucer Aztec Pattern - 2
Now, you may ask what surface do I cut the tape on? Well, I had an old storm window with a frame on it, that was laying around. So, I cleaned it up, then I lay about 7 or 8 strips of the masking tape down on the glass so there are no spaces between each strip. The glass was only wide to do half of the saucer at a time. First, I build up some tape at the anchor point for a pushpin tohold the compass in place. Then I draw with the pencil all of the lines I'm going to be needing for the mask. With a fresh exacto blade I then cut over those lines so the curve is nice and smooth. In this picture you can also see some of the vertical cuts that I will use. Wither you use friskette or do it like this, there is going to be a LOT of cutting to do.
