For this project, I have drawn a simple Celticknot design, using some inexpensive art materials, some paper and a gold edging marker pen.
The Celtic Knot Shape
Celtic knots resemble interwoven ribbon designs, that go around forever and they can easily be incorporated into any calligraphy project or on a gift card. Celtic knots are commonly used in tattoo designs and printed on fabric.
My Celtic Knot Project 2
I started this project by drawing a Celtic knot by freehand, using a hard nibbed 2H pencil and layout paper. The materials I used were a black pen, some pencils for shading and a gold pen.
I first drew the outline of the Celtic knot in fine pencil, then I drew the outline with the black pen and then shaded the Celtic knot using a 2H and 2B pencil. The 2B pencil was used for the darker shading. You can use any medium for this project, such as charcoal or coloring pencils. You can get watercolor pencils from any art shop, and they are great for setting off some color to your artwork. You can dip the pencil in some water and apply the pencil to paper and this will give an appearance of watercolor paints.
