Vases caskets & eggs

Post by Kat on 2012-03-13, 11:31

Hello,

Although I'm new to quilling, I've picked it up very easily, so would now like to progress to some harder projects.

I've seen the beautiful vases, caskets/baskets and eggs in the gallery and would love to have a go, but don't know where to start!

I know you can buy styrofoam eggs and cover them with quilled shapes, but what do you do to make a hinged egg, and how on earth do you make a vase or casket? How do you get the shape? Do you need to use a mould?

I've Googled 'how to make a quilled vase or casket' but I can't find anything, and there are no books on the subject either.

Hope someone can help,

Kat x

Hi Kat, if you go into "You Tube" and write in (vases) or what every you are looking for, from there on you will find so many ideas, and no until now there has been no books how to do these objects you are asking for. But you do need some kind of form to make a start by using bowls and then just adding a handle. But remember after you have done your project to use paper hardener or a good paper lack to give firmness. Good luck just go for gal bounce line
