Creating craft quilling technique

Despite its apparent simplicity, quilling is not so simple.It requires patience, skill and imagination.Because of its development should begin not with the bulk composition, and with paintings and postcards.

First we need to get the righ
t tools.

Firstly, the necessary papers.Quilling paper used for different density, dyed through.Its cut strips of a length of 15 to 60 centimeters and a width from 1 to 15 millimeters.But you can buy ready-made set in specialized stores.For bumagokrucheniya use paper of different density and thoroughly painted.The set includes both monochrome stripes and shiny, pearl, and even double-toning.

Secondly, for the convenience of curling will need a special tool, like a long two-pronged fork.It can also be purchased at the store.To create a complex work still use paper for corrugating machines for cutting paper fringe and line with circles to create identical elements.

addition to strips of paper and "plug" for their twisting need PVA glue and scissors.

After acquiring all the tools you need to choose a scheme for future paintings.For starters recommend simple floral patterns made up of symmetrical circles.

to create a paper element, the so-called modules, the tip paper strip is inserted into the "plug" and is tightly screwed.Modules twisted strips of those colors that are indicated in the diagram.Once you have created the desired number of elements of their carefully laid on the canvas, and is compared by the number.If the module is enough to create a circuit element, start gluing.

label produced using tweezers and PVA glue, which if necessary can be replaced by any other thick glue.Each module is applied to a small drop of glue and hold it with tweezers, pressed against the canvas.Thus the paper is filled with elements of the whole scheme.

After drying, it is inserted into a picture frame.
