Let me show you today my new three-dimensional quilled creation. This is a model of a sailboat, or to be precise — the galleon "Golden Hind" . I started this project about a year ago, but couldn't finish it until recently.
For this ship miniature I used mainly black, yellow and brown quilling strips 1/8" wide (3 mm), as well as pieces of black and yellow colored paper.
The masts are crafted out of wooden toothpicks painted with acrylic paint, the sails out of Korean paper of a special type that somewhat resembles crepe paper. The tiny steering wheel can be turned :) The anchors are made of paper, too, and painted with a metallic marker.
The vessel is placed on a cardboard base coated with wood pattern self-adhesive foil, under a plastic display dome. The display dome is one that comes with Play-Doh Make 'n' Display kits.
The ship measures 2 3/4 inches (7 cm) in height and 3 5/8 inches (9.2 cm) in length.
