Priming the Canvas

LA 2.04 – The Halfway Point

In the Blocks — Resetting the Cup Position for Drawing

The halfway point, at which the cup is half filled, is now the blank canvas you’ve created for most designs. For very detailed and advanced designs with multiple elements, a little more than half of the cup may be needed. To create classic patterns such as the rosetta and the tulip, the halfway point is where your pouring position resets. From this point onwards, your pouring technique undergoes a complete reversal.

For the first half of the design until the halfway point, hold the cup with the rim horizontal to the bench.
