Quotation

Diapering is derived (as I take it of the Greeke verbe διάπερω which is, traÿcio or transeo, in English to passe or cast over, and it is nothing else but a light tracing or running over with your pen (in Damaske branches, and such like) your other worke when you have quite done (I meane folds, shadowing and all) it chiefely serveth to counterfeit cloath of Gold, Silver, Damaskbrancht, Velvet, Chamlet, &c. with what branch, and in what fashion you list.
