IDEAL FOR: DRAUGHTING AND TECHNICAL DRAWING, FINE ART AND ILLUSTRATION:
Clamp your paper pad / canvas/ cardstock or paper sheet onto the board as straight as you can. Adjust the rubber belt to secure the other edge of your material to the lower portion of the board. This can be moved around depending on where on the material you need to work.
The portability of these drawing boards means that you can work on your lap indoors and outdoors using it as a lap desk when other surfaces arent available, or if you do not wish to be confined to a particular table, desk or work surface.
