Beehive technique

Post by Quill Me on 2012-05-27, 00:34

Does anyone find the slotted tool works best for this or the needle tool?

Good morning Bronwyn, I use the slotted tool it has a better hold also I find it does a better job than the needle.I am happy to see you are working on the bee hive once you get the hang of it you love doing it. I use a thicker paper it holds its form better also I do not do long spaces

Thanks Toye, for your handy hints. I rarely use the slotted tool but it seems to be made for this technique.

Hi Bronwyn, I forgot to give you a good tip which from my experience works out much better. When I am working on a larger area doing bee hive technique, I do not try to roll all at once to fill into the space. I normally take a 30 cm strip and place this first, by pushing it up to one area and pinning it, and do the next roll and so on. I found it is better to work out how much rolls one needs, for as you roll the paper also rolls making things all finger and no thumbs when putting your work into the space. After filling the space I then move things around with a pin until I feel it looks o.k. I hope this little tip will help you, good luck looking forward in see your bee hive creations flower

Thank you, it looks beautiful!

I'll have a go, but I don't expect I'll be very good.

Ionly just recently discovered the 'beehive' technique. I think it is beautiful!!
I use the slotted tool, and like toye wrote- i too find it easier to do strip by strip.
I racked my brains trying to figure out how i can incorporate it into my 3D Quilling....
I'll be posting my final product on my blog in the next couple of weeks!
