Pencil practice on the Ribbon Candy motif

I’ve been practicing my drawing of ribbon candy and now I’m ready to give it a go on the machine!  In drawing it I discovered a couple of things.  It looks better when I focus on bringing the line in and out, instead of trying to make the two sides match.  Also, the wide part does not need to be large, it looks better and is easier to make the effect if you don’t make it “fat”.  The biggest thing, I’ve learned, and I knew this, but take a step or two back from the work.  Look at the whole shape, in this case edge to edge.

I’m still nervous about making videos, so bare with me please.  I’ve learned when I show the design with my hand, I need to use my right hand.  I do these without rehearsing, so my lapses in speaking are my brain trying to figure out what I’m saying.  I’m hoping this gets easier over time.  If not, then, I guess I will have to Practice!

Have you tried the ribbon candy?

God Bless!
