Beginning the creation of an amulet - the second video

The wound threads.

The first stage of creating a protection amulet is to bind the paper containing the image of the demon-dispelling scorpion. By following video two of the three videos, you will create a square with wound blocks of thread of the five colours, as shown in the illustration above. There are two blocks of green in the centre. The blocks of colour are made up of threads. The number of threads in a block of colour will depend on the size of your folded square, and the thickness of your thread. How to calculate this is explained in the second video.

In effect, this stage of the process creates the vertical warp threads across which the weft threads will be woven to create the finished design.

The finished design.

The third video will explain and demonstrate the woven cross threads to complete the design.
