THE ART OF PAPER PRICKING





WOW..WAS THE WORD CAME FROM ME WHEN I SEE THIS ART.WHAT WE DID PLAYFULLY DURING SCHOOL DAYS WAS ACTUALLY A PIECE OF ART.USUALLY WE WILL BE PRICKING OUR NAME IN PAPER.BUT THIS SOME THING WITH ARTISTIC TOUCH.SO FRIENDS,...ANY THING CAN BE GIVEN ARTISTIC TOUCH IN THIS WORLD.YOU CAN DO WONDER FULL GREETING CARDS WITH THIS AND GIFT YOUR FRIENDS.


SO HOW TO DO?HERE IT IS:

  • FIRST TAKE A PAPER AND COMPOSE THE DESIGN ACCORDING TO YOUR GREETING CARD.
  • MOSTLY BOLDER AND DETACHED DESIGN WILL BE GOOD FOR THIS WORK.BEGINNERS CAN TAKE A SIMPLE DESIGN AND ONCE YOU PRACTICE CAN GO FOR COMPLICATED DESIGNS.
  • ONCE DESIGN IS READY,MARK THE DOTS AT EVEN SPACE.THIS WILL BE YOUR TEMPLATE AND YOU CAN USE IT ANY NUMBER OF TIMES
  • PIN Y0UR TEMPLATE WITH THE GREETING CARD AND WITH A PIN OR NEEDLE PUT HOLES.NOW YOUR CARD IS READY.SOUNDS SO SIMPLE NA..YES IT IS, BUT THERE ARE FEW IMPORTANT POINTS TO FOLLOW TO GET THE EFFECT.READ THE TIPS SECTION BELOW.
TIPS:
  1. ALWAYS USE VERY LIGTH COLOUR PAPERS,THEN ONLY YOU WILL GET THE EFFECT.DO IT ON THE LIGTHER COLOUR PAPER A STICK IT ON A DARKER BASE,
  2. DOTS SHOULD BE AT REGULAR INTERVALS,SO THAT THE DESIGN WILL PROPERLY SHOW OFF.
  3. DOTS SHOULD NOT BE VERY CLOSE,OTHERWISE THE PAPER MAY TARE.
  4. DESIGN SELECTION IS VERY IMPORTANT,DON'T TAKE ANY INTRICATE DESIGN AS IT WONT BE CLEAR AFTER FINISHING.
