The layers we work with...

The whitewall tyres are used because the white stripe actually continues underneath the black and when one cuts through the black the white is exposed.

This drawing, which was done by Bonginkosi Tshabalala as part of his research for his B.Tech at Durban University of Technology, illustrates the process beautifully.

The arrow points at the black part of the tyre that is used. The blocks on the top right hand side are examples of some of the patterns that are cut.

In the next post I will show some more examples of such patterns.
