DO IT YOURSELF PURPOSE: To enable individuals to create simulated braille on ornaments, decorative items, and clothing. Using plastic craft canvas as a template, fabric or textured craft paint or ink to make a tactile dot. To practice, the technique, lay a piece of plastic canvas on a sheet of paper and visualize the holes in the canvas as the dots that make a line of braille cells. Using the top three rows of the canvas, practice making the alphabet or the braille sign for "for" by inserting the tip of the pen or paint tube in the square and applying just enough pressure to make an even dot in each opening.
