Paula, This is very cute!
You may like to consider using a heart shaped mouth.
I use that for my angels. You just do 2 quick strokes with a red pen like a "v".
Hope that is what you are looking for in a mouth.

I think she is gorgeous!! very imaginative with the flower soft for the halo!! would never have thought of that! too cute. Do you use a quilling coach for your 3d work? I haven't had a go at any 3d work probably as I have been so obsessed with framed work. Does it take you long to make these?

Thanks Karon
I didn't use a quilling coach, I've thought about buying one,do they really help?
I'm like you more into frame work, just thought I'd try 3-D characters.Didn't have patterns just tried to see what I could come up with.I wonder do people buy 3-D characters? or is it just something you keep for yourself?
I think what takes most the time is coming up with the idea on what you want to make and being new at it. I'm having troubles with the cones, I can make the first one with no trouble, then go to make second one and it will keep comming apart it can take me 2-3 tries before it comes out right.It took me a few hours to make but that includes walking away from it a couple times.
I might make a few here and there but I think I will stick to my pictures.

They are fabulous for a few reasons. The best one is if you are doing a large tight coil, it comes off without pulling the centre either out of shape or worse still a spiral...ever. They measure out the size of your coils with coil guides on the coach, your coils are more uniform and even, you can get them larger than by hand plus it makes quilling large coils less fiddley. The only down side is that they usually fit a slotted tool with the hole but not those fat centre slotted tools or plastic ones. I think most people use the metal ones these days but just for the small percentage that may have a favourite plastic one or like a thicker centre, I just wanted to mention it. If you google you tube, I think quilled creations has a video clip on there of Ali using her coach

I know exactly what you mean. I have also broken some tools too. Plastic ones just break easily but the wooden ones....my goodness did I get annoyed with those more than anything. Before I could buy in metal ones, I used wooden for quite some time. I found, mostly on the needle tool with slit, after very little use they turn around in the timber as you are coiling and you get no where fast. The slotted wooden tool just had a larger center than I liked so it was catch 22.
Sometimes it is hard getting use to a new tool but if you have a good one, it will last you for life and give you much better results.
