*1 sheet of bond paper 8 _ x11 in.
*compressed charcoal
*in. painter’s tape

step one:
..mask the edges with the painter’s tape on the stonehenge paper so that in the end you are left with a border
..you can tape the paper down to the table or floor – so that the paper doesn’t move when your rubbing
step two:
..take the bond paper and tear it up into lots of pieces
step three:
..place the first torn piece of paper on top of the Stonehenge paper and put charcoal on the bond paper and rub with your fingers.
..repeat this till the desired effect is achieved
step four:
..when the rubbing is done peel off the tape...and here you go!
