Some useful links
Quilling Design: good quality quilling papers,
useful equipment and lots of expertise. Best place to buy good quality
strips and materials to make our designs.
Quilling Guild: the Quilling Guild's Website;
a charity with information about displays, events, accreditation
as a quiller, etc.
Full members receive three colour 'Quillers Today' magazines a year
about quilling and quilling matters - with patterns and ideas, and
have access to online facilities.
Online members have access to all online facilities, including copies
of 'Quillers Today', to be read online.
All members can read Guild Facebook pages which are updated regularly
and include members' quillings to admire, and the chance to comment
and show your own work.
Direct: have an acrylic spray, very similar
to the one made by Humbrol, called Keen Top Crystal Clear spray.
To protect your quillings, spray lightly in a well ventilated room
and leave to dry well, before spraying again to finish.
I place quillings together on a newspaper to absorb any varnish
that misses. If you make your quilling on a foam 'Quilling or Husking
(available from JJ Quilling Design), you can place several in a
'bonfire' pile to maximise spray use.
Don't flood quillings, as the paper might become floppy. Always
test mounts before spraying. Cork, wood, hessian, slate, etc. all
Card may absorb unevenly so try it first and use the Quilling board
