Three-dimensional quilled bird miniature

Bird. 3D quilling

This yellow bird is my new three-dimensional quilled work. When I was skimming through my new book on 3D quilling — Three-Dimensional Quilling: Making Characters — for the first time, two ideas popped into my head right away: a fish and a birdie.

Bird. 3D quilling (detail)

It's made from regular 3 mm (1/8 inch) wide quilling strips, its legs from toothpicks. The tail and wings are made using the method of alternate looping. I cut along the strip at the back of the crest to get three 1 mm wide "feathers". The bird's eyes are made from narrow 1.5 mm strips, actually they are regular strips cut in half lengthwise. The height of the bird is about 6 cm (2 3/8 inch) without the pedestal.
