2. Make two imprints with the wooden slab-copy in the dirt

With the woodencopy of the slab two imprints are made with moist dirt. With the latest working method, the top of the slap with its face up, is covered with dirt, that is made flat and compacted. Then the slap is quickley turned over with its face down. Moist dirt is then compacted around the wooden copy to form the sides of the imprint.
Finally with great care the wooden copy is lifted off the imprint. Often little repairs are needed of the imprint, this can be done with mud and something flat.
