Royal Brass

Recently I have become curious with the art of quilling especially since I love making jewelry out of paper.

I took the paper strips, joined 4-5 strips and rolled using a standard paper bead roller.

Barrel of Fun

I then used the tip of a school glue bottle to slowly push the center of the coiled paper to create a dome. They have special quilling tools to do this and other amazing things, but I made do with what I had (smile).

After that I glued the inside/outside for stability, then clear nail polish for sheen.

Although they looked awesome (to me), I was not satisfied, so I glued two domes together and loved the outcome…
