Three-Dimensional Quilling - A Book Review


Three-Dimensional Quilling: Making Characters
Jane Jenkins
Search Press, 2007



Three-Dimensional Quilling: Making Characters by veteran quiller Jane Jenkins, is a good place to start for paper crafters who want to get their feet wet in creating quilled 3D models. The projects range from simple to advanced, and are whimsical in nature.

First off are some simple finger puppets which children would probably enjoy decorating themselves. Next are some long-limbed animals, including a frog, a bird, a cat, and a mouse, which make perfect little companions as they sit on your shelf or desk, or dance around from the end of an elastic cord. Not to be outdone, however, is an absolutely adorable poodle that comes complete with basket, mat and ball. This little canine is sure to melt the heart of any dog lover, and would make an excellent gift – even for yourself!

Advanced users will enjoy the challenged posed by creating free-standing fairies, an elf seated on a toadstool, and large, 6-inch angels. These figures are a bit more intricate and require more work, but the author breaks down the process into manageable steps so that you don’t get lost along the way.

With only five types of projects, however, this book comes across as being a bit thin and leaves you asking for more. Nevertheless, these carefully thought-out projects should be enough to inspire you to design your own characters. Right from the start the author provides you with detailed instructions and photos explaining the techniques you will need to master to make your own quilled characters, and further backs this up with step by step photos and tips specific to each project.

Three-Dimensional Quilling: Making Characters is a decent introductory book on creating 3D models using quilling techniques, and is worth reading if it’s a paper craft you’d like to get into.
