    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Thank you Ross, that's great! I have a little guilloche enamel box inherited from my grandmother, I was always fascinated by the pattern.

    Interesting Bob. Looks good when opened but the small preview not so good. Just my opinion though.

    Gulloche is not only a simple cross-blend but also requires creativity. For Adobe Illustrator there are a few plugins that can generate patterns. In Xara I do everything by hand.
    Here's a little example:

    Significantly cool work here. While I don't particularly (personal taste comment following) like the style itself, the detail of the work itself is still worthy of me just looking at the details and enjoying the patterns and intricacies. Your rendition here is superb, as is the original. I know the 'tricks' to make it easier in Xara, but my brain, when just looking at it, goes, 'WOW!' regardless of the fact I know it's just clever use of the blend tool. Super awesome.
    lots of my xara-made stuff ends up on my tumblr. NOT ALWAYS SAFE FOR WORK BUT MOSTLY IS
