In earlier times, the brush was often used to draw patterns and ornaments, as by combining low and high pressure achieved with the brush on paper the thickness of lines and curves could be regulated. This way you could easily draw beautiful curves of variable thickness. Such curves can also be found under the name ‘scrolls’. A typical drawing and writing technique that uses this effect is calligraphy. These once modern and nowadays interesting and unusual ornamental patterns can still serve their purpose, i.e., decorate an item or be part of a more intricate design pattern. Due to their simplicity, these ornaments are suitable for decorating in various techniques.
