Drum Carder Tutorial-Splitting the Batt
At this point, I have a striped batt, which you may want, sometimes...
...but since I want to
the two colors, I will repeat this process several more times, until I'm satisfied with the shade.
In order to do so...
...I have to split the batt into two layers.
I lay one palm on each side of the batt...
...and pinching, pull it into thin layers.
I re-feed these layers into the carder several more times, repeating the entire process...
...until I get a color I like.
