    Quilling Art

    Quilling has been around for hundreds of years, but itís still as impressive and popular now as it was during the Renaissance.
    The art of quilling first became popular during the Renaissance, when nuns and monks would use it to roll gold-gilded paper and decorate religious objects, as an alternative to the expensive gold filigree. Later, during the 18th and 19th centuries, it became a favorite pass-time of English ladies who created wonderful decorations for their furniture and candles, through quilling.
    Basically, the quilling process consists of cutting strips of paper, and rolling them with a special tool. It sounds simple enough, but special skill is required to create more advanced shapes like marquises, arrowheads or holly leaves. All through the years, the art of quilling has remained almost unchanged, but new specialty supplies now allow quilling masters to create anything from detailed 3-D figures to wall-sized museum installations.
    Because it requires so few supplies, quilling is available to anyone with enough patience to give it a try, and with a little bit of practice youíll be creating some pretty amazing paper artworks, just like iron-maiden-art, whose works I think show the beauty of quilling.
