Quilled Easter egg
I've always been fascinated by the quilled Easter eggs found on the Internet. It's now time for me to showcase my own eggs, this one is just the first of a series.
I decided to make it monochromatic with pale beige quilling strips, 1/16"-wide (1.5 mm). The quilled elements were assembled around an egg shell wrapped in plastic wrap. First, I built the bottom half of the egg (from the middle down), then the top half (from the middle up). It was important not to glue the halves together by mistake before taking the shell out. When the quilled egg was finished, I took its halves apart pulling them off the egg mold, and then glued them together so that the egg is hollow.
I also made a quilled stand for my egg, using 1/16"-wide (1.5 mm) paper strips in two shades of beige. Height of the finished egg is about 2 1/2 inches (6.5 cm), or about 3 1/2 inches (9 cm) when on the stand.
I love your work.
