Art and Design KS4: Paper quilling tools and techniques

Yulia Brodskaya demonstrates some of the techniques she uses in her paper quilling by making a heart.

She starts with the outline in darker colours and then adds a lighter colour scheme towards the inside to create depth.

She demonstrates how she curls the paper round a straw, and then constructs a drop shapes and circles with tightly coloured paper.

Yulia recommends that students try out new techniques to evolve their style.
