In the walks now allowed, look for a floor, uneven asphalt, a hole in the wall or a crack whose design you like. Whether in the yard, on the street or in your home, office, laboratory.
-get a cardboard of about 200gr
-position it between two transparent plastic sheets ( garbage bag will do).
-wet the cardboard evenly and let it rest in the plastic until it becomes soft enough.
-then place it, protected by the plastic, on the selected crack and gently press with your fingers until the paper gets shaped by empty space of the crack or hole.
-the pressure must be such that it does not break the sheet.
-Let it dry by opening the plastic bag from time to time.
-Once it’s dry, pull it out. You’ll have stolen the design of that space.
