An animation (from Italian: cartone and also Dutch: karton-- words explaining strong, heavy paper or pasteboard) is a full-size illustration made on strong paper as a research or modello for a paint, tarnished glass or tapestry. Animations were usually used in the production of frescoes, to properly link the part of the make-up when repainted on damp plaster over a series of days (giornate). 
Such cartoons commonly have pinpricks along the outlines of the style so that a bag of soot patted or "pounced" over the animation, held versus the wall, would certainly leave black dots on the plaster (" pouncing"). Cartoons by painters, such as the Raphael Cartoons in London, and instances by Leonardo da Vinci, are very prized in their own right. Tapestry animations, generally coloured, were followed with the eye by the weavers on the loom
