Ornamentation scroll


(Derrick Carver) #1

Does any one know of a program or were to get a program for ornamentation scroll work.

There are some scroll designs in the Carbide Create Library.

You should be able to draw up any sort of design you might wish using Inkscape or a similar program.

There are also ornamental fonts which one can use to add such features to a design.

Do you have an image of the sort of thing which you want?

Oh ok didn’t know that I have been using my vectrics program. But thank you for that info I will look into that.

There are a lot of images around, https://www.google.com/search?q=scrollwork+stencils&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiywNSLibHbAhUB6YMKHY0wCxsQ_AUICigB&biw=1400&bih=759&dpr=2

There are many out of print books/catalogs of scrollwork stencils that have been scanned and are easy to find excerpts from.

Vectric has a lot of resources as well — be sure to check on them.

What you want to google image search is “embellishment”.

Link for lazy people like me.

EDIT: It has been bugging me all day. The key word to search for is “flourish” or “flourishes” to get the fancy swirly thingies.
