- Paper (Dressing)
- Quilling paper
- The ball is airy, or the egg is plastic
- toothpick for quilling
- paints, acrylic
Preparation of the basis
Let's start our work. To begin with, it is necessary to prepare the shape of the product, which will later become our base and on which the elements of quilling will be superimposed. To do this, you need to take a balloon, or an egg and spread it with a special tool. A variant of petroleum jelly, or a cream for hands can approach or suit. After that, the egg is processed with the help of glue. To make a beautiful papier-mache, you need to use newspapers or pages of old books. In our case, we will work with toilet paper, but you can choose your own option. Feature of toilet paper is that it dries quickly, which allows you to quickly work out the desired surface.
Work with the base
We tear toilet paper on smallstrip, and then cover the ball with these residues. After this, you need to again spread the ball or egg with a layer of glue, and then - again cover with toilet paper. Toilet paper absorbs the glue well, after that, we will form the thickness depending on the part of our base. Next, the workpiece must dry out. If you used a ball, it's enough just to stab our needle with a needle after it dries. For a plastic egg, it is necessary to cut the base structure in half, and then - to glue.
We work with the egg. It must be brought into a normal form, therefore, we take up the paint and safely cover the whole egg with acrylic. After the paint has dried, we'll start working on the decorations. Forms of quilling in this case can be done in a free form. It all depends on which picture you have designed. You can also arrange the patterns in chaotic order. Quilling elements are made with a strip of paper, which are superimposed on the toothpick. You make a cut in the toothpick and through one end, wind the quilling paper onto the base of your instrument. After, just form the form you need. Next, it is necessary to paste the quilling forms on the surface of the egg. In this case, it is best to use tweezers, especially if some forms of quilling are very small. Figures may not be symmetrical, and it is best to combine different deformed shapes to make the egg more fun. The work is ready! Now the egg can become an ornament of your flowerpot, cabinet or window!
