4th Cutting:

by Patricia Alexandria in THE PROCESS

Cutting is essentially redrawing with a knife, xacto knife. These are the drawn lines that matter.  There is no erasing or redrawing, cuts are made exact.

Technically one must consider how each line connects with another line.  These connections create separate areas that can be revealed and blasted. 

Each area needs to be distinguished from the areas  next to it.  Some areas are clear some are blasted lightly, some are deeply carved.  These differences are what allow the viewer to see the design. Just something to  consider.
