Guilloche patterns


#1

Hi Ricky

One of the nice things about the forum is that you never know where a
question of statement will take you. A very good example of this is
your question about guilloche patterns. I have really enjoyed the
research and the fruits of the research, so I thank you for your
question. The site noted below has a spirograph applet that I think
you will find interesting. It will enable you to create guilloche
patterns in a manner that I imagine would be similar to using an
actual rose lathe, that is, start & stop, change parameters, speed,
etc. Try playing with it for a bit and let me know what you think. One
last thing before I send this off to you, I find that many of my
postings to the forum seem either to be very slow in getting posted,
or never get posted at all. Have you had the same experience?
