Beads — versatile and easy to work material with it into a masterpiece you can turn anything. Soon Easter, so today the topic of our article — twining eggs with beads.
Materials and tools:
- Egg. It is advisable to take a wooden egg and cover it with paint to match the beads. With this egg to work harder, it will be short-lived
- Beads. We used beads 11 gauge. You can take beads 15 caliber, they are smaller and look more beautiful but also to work with the beads harder.
- Thread for beads (this is not the same as regular thread, take a nylon or Dacron).
- Needles for bead No. 12.
- Scissors, preferably with a thin nail tips.
Technology of braiding with beads eggs
1. Scheme weaving beaded eggs. In this project we will use the classical scheme of weaving, when the bead in each column of the next row falls between the two previous bead, as if forming the brickwork.
2. Twining egg beads starts with measurements. Type a few dozen of bead on the thread. With the help of this thread need to measure the circumference of the egg at the widest section. Gradually add beads to the total number of filaments is a multiple of 5. The thread should tightly embrace the egg. Record the number of beads in the longest row.
4. Start from the bottom. Tighten the needle to thread. The thread should be long enough, but don’t overdo it — too long thread will skruchivali to tie into knots. Nanizhite thread on 5 beads.
Pull the thread through all the beads again to make a ring.
Pull off the ring, leave the thread length of about 5 cm, Add one bead and pull the thread through the next one. As a result, in this series you will also 5 the bead.
Nanizhite two beads, pull the thread through one. Continue until you are completely finished the series. Put a bead between each pair of the previous row.
Continue to tat. Mix and match the techniques listed in the preceding paragraph so as to replicate the shape of an egg.
Twining eggs continue beading until you reach the wide section of the form.
Woven into a ring, with which you measured the circumference of the egg. If you did everything right, the ring has to fit perfectly to the already woven the workpiece. From this point weave to you need, gradually reducing the amount of the bead from row to row.
If during operation you want to add a thread, it can simply bind additional cut. Etogonuzhno to use a reef knot. Sticking out the ends, trim with nail scissors.
5. A middle section. The middle part of the egg is easier to spin, because its width does not change. Just spin row by row, without changing the number of bead.
6. Narrows upwards. At this stage, do everything in reverse order — reduce the number of bead in each row, using the techniques given in the beginning of the manual.
If you are not happy, rasplatita a few rows and try to change the number of the bead in them. To finish you must ring five bead. Pull them tight, several times skipping the thread. Tie a reliable knot and trim the ends.
Remember a good and smooth beads so they are evenly distributed on the egg surface.
Scheme weaving beaded eggs are very different — complex and simple, we brought the most basic. Using it for multi-colored beads, you can achieve amazing results!
