What is rug carving?
If you've delved into the world of tufting you may have seen some of the pros carving their rugs to create definition and to tidy the rug up! This allows you to get a nice even surface to your rug as well.
In This DIY Session with the help of All Things EFFY owner (Carolyn) you will learn to both carve and back your rug.
You'll start by tidying up you lines so that they can be carved, Then you will back the rug (you need 15- 20 minutes to let the liquid latex set infront of a heater). After that you'll even out the surface of your rug and then lastly start carving definitition and details!
