Latin American Influences: Textile Inspirations class.
I've owned this mola with two cats since I was a senior in college. I decided I'd like to make a carved block of the smaller cat.
First I made a pencil tracing. This was a little tricky as the mola is framed in glass and it was a little hard to see all the details.
Next, I taped the pencil tracing to a light box and made a second tracing, this time on a piece of white printer paper with a marker.
I reduced the image by 50% so it would fit on this Speedball Speedy Carve block.
Tomorrow, I will transfer the design to the block so I can start carving. Stay tuned!
