Guilloche technique - tissue burning

For guilloche( burning through the fabric), use only synthetic fabrics that do not burn, but melt. Before work begins, the strength and stickiness of the fabric is checked on a small piece. In addition to a special burner device for work, you can change the usual burner on wood, replacing the needle.

How to create a wipe in the guilloche technique:

First you need to prepare the work area.

Complete the master-class on knitting different toys amigurumi

Put the glass, and under it we place the lamp.
We translate the photo
On the glass, put a sheet of paper with a patterned napkin pattern, and on top of the pattern put the silver cloth to the paper with the front side. The fabric will reflect the pattern from the paper. With the help of an incinerator or a soldering iron, we trace all the contours of the ornament.

The pattern along with the fabric should remain on paper, and the excess fabric that is cut off the contour must be carefully removed.
Superfluous remove the photo
Using a knife, remove all small, already pre-cut, pieces of fabric on the pattern.
Make a pattern inside the photo
The pattern remains stapled with a sheet of paper. From above on the pattern fixed with a paper we impose the basic fabric of 20х20 centimeters a face sheet to a sheet of a paper. Arrange the fabric so that the pattern is at the desired location. In this example, the pattern will be in the corner of the napkin. With the help of an incinerator or a soldering iron, you need to pinpoint the pattern in several places. Immediately after picking up the tissue site, you need to press down the point put by the soldering iron with your fingers so that the pattern and fabric are tightly interlocked.

Using a knife, gently pulling the entire napkin together with the pattern, you need to separate it from a sheet of paper. Thus, the pattern is transferred to the fabric.
Adding the main fabric photo
The next step is to use a soldering iron or a burner to walk through the entire pattern, do not forget to press the pattern to the fabric with your fingers. In the desired areas of the future napkin as a decoration on the pattern, you can make several through holes. Thus, the finish will be delicate.

The outer contour of the finish should be cut with a soldering iron or burner to remove any excess primary fabric.
Crop photo
We compose the whole contour of napkins with a coin.
Processing edges photo
For a more openwork and as an additional decoration of the napkin in each cut out semicircle, a through hole can be made.
Make holes in the photo
In this technique, you can also make multi-layered drawings. Each time a layer of tissue between each other needs to be pointedly, but carefully fastened.

Guilloche on the skin

There is another guilloche direction in which the leather is liable to treatment. In this case, the burner is not used to create holes in the material, but to apply the pattern.

You will also need some practice to master this art, so before working on the product you want to decorate, practice on unnecessary lengths of skin.

Choose the right thing for which you will apply a drawing - for example, a leather bag or purse. To start with, not a new product, which in case of what will not be a pity to spoil. Remember that to create a contrast pattern, it is better to treat the skin of light shades.
Apply the pattern photo
Prepare a drawing that will be transferred to a leather product. The plant elements will look best, for example, but it is better not to use geometric exact figures. The selected picture is transferred to the tracing paper.

Now the drawing needs to be transferred to the skin with delicate strokes. To do this, you will need a pin or a thick needle.
Draw a photo
After that, proceed to the direct burnout of the drawing. Do this slowly, without straining your hand.
