My favorite for things like this is a product you can get at most
craft stores called leading. It's basically thin rubber strips
with adhesive backing. It's intended for people making stained
glass crafts--the idea is you make shapes on the glass with the
leading and then color them in so the leading looks like the lead
strips that hold pains together in real stained glass
windows--but it works very well for making raised line drawings.
There are different thinknesses and also some basic pre-made
shapes in addition to the strips you can use.

Subject: [nobe-l] simple tactile graphics
Iâm thinking of creating some tactile graphics of computer
concepts including basic layout of a website.
What things do you use to make simple graphics? I was thinking
tape and felt might work. Anyone know if graphic art tape comes
in various thinknessess? Iâve seen two widths so far.
For a graphic that is not permanent, have you all used toy or
craft items? I was thinking maybe magnets, or what I think is
called foam paper.
Any ways do you creat lines, permanent or not so permanent? Maybe
a felt board with velcrow strips? The wheatley kit is good, but
is there something similar less expensive?
I also have another question on raised letters which Iâll state
