Notes: On each side the gummed tape obscures 1″ board from edge and 1″ of paper (2″ width gummed tape). In-between 0.5″ and 1″ of additional border are left on the unobscured paper for sketching space. Composition can be laid out on unobscured paper and the final cropping done with low tack masking tape before painting. All dimensions are based on these figures.
