Art and Design KS4: The art of paper quilling

Artist Yulia Brodskaya demonstrates how she sketches and constructs her name by using paper quilling.

She designs the lettering and prints the outline, then sketches swirling curls and pattern.

She uses an embossing tool to trace her original sketch and applies paper strips to create a colourful relief sign of her name.
