Title: Different ways to fill a rhinestone design
Post by: laceygunsmoke on February 08, 2013, 11:57:30 AM
hi again,
My next questions.

I found this tutorial, however this is not inkscape that they used, however the things the teach are very desirable to me to accomplish!

(hopefully that works)

Well in the video, they show you all the different ways to fill and object, and the 3rd option is very uniform, and i would really like to be able to accomplish that technique.

Does anyone know how to accomplish that on inkscape?
Thanks for all the imput!

Hi laceygunsmoke, there are different ways you can create a fill. Do you know how to use path inset and outset? You can use both with your basic shape to create new paths and then add rhinestones to each new path. You then have a fill that follows the contours of the original shape. I will try and get a quick pictorial written up this weekend.

Laceygunsmoke,
I've been following this thread in hopes of learning more about this.
I wanted to make a shaped fill sequin template, but never quite got it the way I wanted it.

Carolynn,
I'm looking forward to seeing your pictorial.
I've had some trouble with the sequin shapes (circles) getting distorted
on tight curves when I use pattern along path to fill smaller areas of the shape.

Hi Carolyn...I would love to know how to have a rhinestone design follow the contoured paths of a design instead of having the holes go straight across and up and down. I've been doing all the inkscape tutorials trying to figure this out but have not had sucess yet. All help is appreciated.  :)
