CPT Technique: Aura

CPT Aura

Adding an aura to any shape can change a pattern completely.


We differentiate between an inside aura and an outside aura (see the first row).

Auras do not always have to be drawn at the same distance of the shape. An example is shown in the second row.

Highlights can be added by drawing the inside aura with a white pen. Using dots to draw an aura around the design adds a delicate touch.

Below is another example of how an inside aura can enhance a pattern:

As mentioned earlier, the Aura Technique can be applied to any shape as well as using dots or dashes.
