The first stage in the process is to remove the excess fabric by cutting close to the drawing leaving border that is approximately 1cm all around. Next, the drawings are carefully pinned onto some pieces of thick foam and then held under running water.

Sometimes a second wash is required - it is important to make sure that enough of the dissolvable fabric has been removed otherwise the work will be dark because the colours can be darkened by the glue. But, it is also helpful for some glue to be left in the work to help stiffen it for mounting purposes.
