Guilloche

Guilloche is a technique of open burning on fabric. Different napkins, tablecloths, clothing items and even paintings can be created by guilloche. For this you need a device for burning through a tree, in which the sting is replaced with a needle from a wire.

Further work required: glass, lamp, paper and fine synthetic fabric, best fits atlas. The glass is installed so that under it you can install the lamp. I use an LCD TV with a damaged matrix for this purpose, instead of which glass is inserted (perhaps someone would be interested in such a device is quite convenient). The picture is printed on the printer or copied onto a white sheet of paper or drawing paper manually. It is desirable that the lines of the picture were clear and thick, if they are thin, then it is necessary to circle them with a marker. You can find a suitable picture on the Internet or come up with your own.

Consider burning on fabricon an example of a napkin (drawing took on the Internet): We turn on the lamp, put the paper with a picture on the glass, we put the fabric on top and proceed to the burning out. You can do as single-layer products, with a pattern, and double-layered, with "gluing" the layers to each other, using a burner. I'll talk about a two-layer creation of a napkin. This will require a small piece of monophonic fabric and colored patches. You can choose colors to your liking. I chose gold for the base and the center of the flowers, green for the leaves, red for the colors themselves.

First, we cut out elements from the flaps of the burning apparatus, which will be superimposed on top of the base, flowers and leaves. It is best to iron the fabric with an iron and slightly stretch when burning. Keep in one place, avoiding shifts. Needle vyzhigatelnogo apparatus should be carried away. You need to cut out the details along the outer contour, about the inner one, which will be discussed later.

Afterhow all the details are cut, we take the fabric for the base of the napkin and pin it to the paper with a pattern, covering it completely.

Next comes the detail that will be from below, for example, a part of the sheet can be placed under the flower and "glued" to the base like this:  Guilloche
 Guilloche The needle makes light strokes that look like a droplet, long does not hold the needle in place, otherwise large holes will turn out. Details are superimposed on the basis of the figure. When all the leaves are attached to the base, proceed to the flowers. Also, according to the drawing, we put on the base and "solder" the same method, hiding the tail of the leaves. In this napkin, the flowers are divided into two parts. Most of it will be superimposed on the face, but a little purl. Thus, you get an interesting color effect.

After all the elements are based on, it remains to cut holes of various shapes through the pattern and cut out the outer contour of the entire napkin. It can be made, as smooth, and openwork, as in my example. This is an important part in the creation of napkins and requires special care.
