Parchment Craft
« on: September 07, 2012, 02:37:13 PM »
Has anyone managed to create parchment craft patterns or paper pricking patterns using Inkscape? I know it must be possible; any advice or help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi

Can you attach an example picture of the type of thing you want to do ?  Not familiar with parchment craft but it is almost certainly possible

I do parchment. I convert my pattern to an svg file and use either an Embossing tool or white pencil to do my outlines. It takes time to do the pattern but you get a great outline. I haven't tried embossing fill on my machine. I have done paper pricking but it was with KNK software. Haven't tried with Inkscape. Possibly if you use a full stop for your hole and to an object it may work. I did have some Parchment pieces in the gallery. One was a peacock and all the outlines were done with an embossing tool.
