Could you suggest any RI piping templates to help me practice?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

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:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 88

 

 

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 :-)

I am certainly no expert, but I find that if I go too slow, it gets wobbly. Also, if you just put enough in your bag to just hold on your hand, it reduces hand pain, and wobbling.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Wilton's site has a huge section of patterns of all kinds.

http://www.wilton.com/decorating/patterns/patternlocator.cfm

You can search for something specific, but just on the first page, take a look at C scroll or S curve border. Those are fairly simple to start with. If you keep looking, you'll find something at the complexity you want.

I would print out the design, put it under clear plastic/acetate, and practice the pattern on that. Then you can scrape the icing off and reuse it. Here's Baroque Curve Border (click on the picture for a larger version):

 

 

I like to watch people doing piping. https://www.google.com/search?q=youtube+piping+technique&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."
