Leather: Cow skin Satin: Silk Canvas: Cotton Glue: Animal remains Cardboard: Trees Elastic: Rubber trees; tree sap Stitching: Cotton Ribbon: Cotton Use of the pointe shoe Dancers, both girls and boys, use pointe shoes to dance the most freaquent dance- ballet.
Pointe shoes are used all over the world. They show a sense of strength, grace, and elegance.
When you think of a ballerina, they are always wearing the beautiful pointe shoes. Life of a pointe shoe The lifespan of the pointe shoe depends on how hardcore you are in dance, the build of you pointe shoe, the fit, your weight, and your performance surface. It can last from a week to a couple years. Dispose pointe shoes? Lend to crafts, especially if "shabby chick" slightly seruffy rather than completely trashed. Could be a wonderful display. The only bad thing to do with them is throw them away- a ballet sin. With these products, the pointe shoe is made! Pointe Shoes Leather has to follow the preparatory → tanning → crusting → surface coating sub-process order without deviation, but some of the sub-processes can be omitted to make certain leathers (or partially tanned/ untanned products).
Carboard is processed at the mill, the harvested tree trunks are subjected to the kraft process, also known as the sulfate process because of the chemicals used to break down wood chips into fibrous pulp. After pulping and other processing, the fibers are sent directly to the paper machine where they are formed, pressed, dried, and rolled into the wide, heavy rolls of kraft paper sent to corrugating plants to be made into cardboard. Stitching is woven from cotton. Materials for glue are broken down, cooked by boiling, resulting in "glue liqour" and reheated again to thinken the glue. Chemicals are added to make clear and clean glue. To make more concentrated, it is put into vacuum evaporators and dried in one of several methods. It also may be chilled. For ribbon, thread is spun, dyed, treated, and rolled on bobbins. The woven product emerges on rollers that carry it forward for further processing such as adding glues, stiffeners, or fabric treatmeants. After ribbons are made by the bobbins, they are wound onto spools. Canvas is processed from a heavy cotton material. In elastic, the cloth is first woven with cotton. Then rubber made from tree sap is interwoven through the the stretchy cloth. For satin, silk is processed into satin by a complex weaving process that leaves mush floats laying on top of the material to give the material the shiny finish.
