Title

Kite Making: The kite's covering is cut and glued section by section, 1987

Description

To affix the nylon covering to the kite's frame, the covering is first spread on the floor. The frame is then placed on top of the covering which is marked for reference to keep it in place while it is being cut. The covering is cut and glued section by section not pre-cut then glued in a single place as one might expect. Soeun Tim told us that in Cambodia if glue was not available he would make homemade glue by mixing rice flour with boiling water.
