Function: Cartoon  
The final design was transferred to the final support by means of a cartoon (from the Italian word cartone), an enlarged copy of the modello that was the same size as the planned finished work. The sheet was laid against the surface and the image was transferred by incision or by pouncing. The cartoons were often destroyed during the tranfer process; hence they are somewhat rare today.
