Betta Curl

This beautiful piece of art draws inspiration from Betta Fish. For this attractive art which is amazing to gift a loved one will naturally look pretty with any sharp color. See the step by step instructions below.

Things needed

  1. A circular board of diameter 26 inches.
  2. 200 strong pins or nails and a hammer to fix pins
  3. Thread, strong enough to hold atleast 1kg of weight. You can choose color of your choice.

Optional efforts to make the art look better

  1. Paint your board with nice color which gives nice backgorund to your art
  2. You can choose a nice velvet cloth for good background

Now lets make this

  1. Draw a circle of radius 12.5 inches from center of the board. Circumference is around 200 cms.
  2. Pick a starting point, lets call it 0. Now starting from 0, keep fixing pins on the circumference of the circle at a space of 1cm. So if you number your pins, it will be 0, 1, 2, 3, ... 199.
  3. Here we have combination of 2 different shapes. One is the half circle of Heart Shape. Other one is similar to Flaming Phoenix but with a small difference.
    • In the Fralming Phoenix, we use the same number of thread to pass from 1 point. Here we will increase that number gradually.
