More Geometric Borders
Now that you have the hang of laying out a grid and building your design within that grid you can start to collect and practice a folder of designs.
The tulip design is often used as a border on "Bela Dona" plates with a beautiful stylized female in the center. I like to use this design on the backs of bowls and I also used it on this trophy plate for the Women's Prize Tourney at Estrella War 2004. I added more petals for that one making it look more like a daffodil. This tulip is either of a curly variety or purely artistic license. The design is traditional and probably just a fanciful flower, not really meant to be a tulip. But that is what I call it.
Start the same way you did in the last lesson but use the 8-section protractor. Paint a dot in the center of each section.
