Pouncing

Pouncing Pouncing is a method of transferring a preparatory drawing for a painting from paper to another surface, such as canvas or plaster. The artist would prick holes around the outlines of the drawing, place it over the second surface, and then dust powder such as chalk or charcoal through the holes. Pouncing can also refer to the dotted outline left on the second surface.
