Greetings all

I need to design a pattern for romanian point lace that shows a mechanical gear in a chemistry flask.  I have the basic lines sorted, but im trying to figure out how to fill the empty spaces around the gear inside the flask.  

Part of why Im stuck is because all the patterns and photos I am seeing show how to fill loops and circles, but what I need is to fill large open spaces.  

If possible I want to keep to techniques that are obviously romanian point, eg the needle weaving.  Things like the button hole fillers dont look that nice in my eyes.

Any suggestions?

I have not done any Romanian point, but I do have a general idea of the method. Have you looked at the opening page of this MIXED TAPE LACE group?  Look at the section RESOURCES FOR MIXED TAP LACE which is directly under the group icon. If you look towards the bottom of that list there are 2 links plus a suggestion for finding photos of Romanian point. If you see enough photos of what dedicated experts of that type have used, that may give you ideas about solving your problem.  I just check the 2 links and they are still active, and both have a large number of photos.

As I understand it Romanian point uses crocheted strips to make the tapes, and needle lace stitches to fill the empty spaces. But they seem to use a lot of fillings which are not so popular among other needlelaces.

If it is your own design, you can do what you like with it in terms of stitches and overall effect. But in general, I think needle lace beauty depends on contrasts of texture and density. Too much variety confuses the eye, and too little is boring. Finding the best balance is the solution.
