#495 TECHNIQUES: Woven rug technique

I'm always on the look for new and exciting ways to use common pieces, so today's technique showcases how minifigure hands can be used to create woven rugs for your MOCs.



The original concept for the technique is by Caleb Angel, but it is pictured in use by Kai NRG/Geneva on Flickr. He arranges the hands in a rectangle and the uneven texture created looks great, perfectly replicating the feel of a woven rug.
