In this tutorial I'm gonna show you how to draw a simple paper clip in Affinity designer.

In the first step we will draw the single paper clip as a curve and will use the actions break curve and join curve. With the pen tool we will extend the curve so that it looks like a real paper clip.

In the second step (8:18) we will link two paper clips together. Therefor we will use the function expand stroke and the operations devide and add.

In the third step we will use a rectangle as a clipping mask to create the drawing for the closed paper clip brush (12:38). 

At 16:12 I'll show you how to export the paper clip drawings as transparent png files.

Creating different brushes in AD and AP will been shown at 18:05.
