The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

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.

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.
