Packing and Rolling Decorative Thread Art
The greatest compliment a decorative thread artist can receive is "Where can I buy those stickers ?" or "That looks like tape, can I buy some?"
I am often asked how to get the wraps tighter and with less visible gaps. I have assembled some pictures during a recent weave and tried to make a picture tutorial.
Pictures and videos are the easiest way for me to learn and I hope these can be of some help to those of you who are trying to tighten your wraps up.
These techniques are being employed on a weave but I frequently use the same techniques on crosswraps with outstanding results.
You will be amazed at how far threads can me moved (sometimes more that 1/8th of an inch) in an attempt to make that wrap look nearly flawless. One thing to remember though. YOU the builder know where those little fudges are, most other people (including rodbuilders) won't really see them.
I have tried to show the tools, which are mostly hand made and the technique as best I can in the still medium. My biggest tip is to be firm and take your time, OH! practice helps too.
If you need more clarification, please feel free to email or call me.
Tight wraps gang.
