I am feeling more and more that I’d like to practice my RI piping… I’ve looked up ‘filigree’ and “lace” images and they seem dauntingly difficult so I wondered if anyone had any suggestions for templates I can practice with in the aim of building up to the really tough ones?!
I thought about these two to train constant pressure and tracing accuracy: (may I also ask that in terms of speed for one line of the simple pattern here; is about a minute rushing it; does going slow and steady taking 3-4mins create problems other than a sore hand?! Lol)
And on this one I was thinking to pick out some of the graduating aspects and repeats as well as playing and learning how to ‘adlib’ on a generic line:
If you are able to suggest any other images or search phrases (It’s hard to know the words to search for sometimes!) that might help me with other techniques I’d be very grateful :-) Maybe something which practices the droplet-like designs that are thicker at one end than the other… ... ...
Happy piping :-)
