Remove the Tape

After an hour or so, test for wetness, then remove the tape. Make sure the line is dry before moving anything over it.

Continue the Pattern

Create random width and size stripes with the colors and tape. Continue moving in on both sides until the rug is complete.

Let Dry

Let dry completely (at least 8 hours) before rolling, preferably overnight if you can.
