Taping the last

So to make the upper of a shoe what you have to do is completely tape up the last you are using and draw your design onto the tape, from there you then take the tape off and flatten it out onto a piece of card, there you can cut out the templates of your design and begin to cut these templates into the fabrics you are using. These pictures are showing the first steps of this process. When i was taping the last up the tape didnt stick to the last because it is made from plaster, this is why i need to make a cast out of a different material like a plastic.
