How do I hold paper down to draw on?

Using tape

There are several different ways to hold material down to your spoil board. You should ensure your material is as flat as possible and thet your material does not lift or move. 

We would recommend using a low tack tape along all edges such as masking tape or Frog tape.



Other methods

You can also explore other options, some may work better than others but this is depending on your material and application, one example being spray mount.
