String art boat pattern reviewed

string art boatOne of the most popular free downloads from the String Art Fun web site is the boat pattern. If you are new to string art this is a great pattern to start with.

The pattern instructions can be printed out on an A4 sheet (210mm x 297mm or 8 x 12 inches). The suggested method is to put the printed pattern over the backing board and hammer the nails through into the backing board. The paper is removed before starting to tie the string in place. Once the nails are in place the whole thing should go quite quickly.
