Quilling Paper or Filigree Paper
Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled and arranged to form decorative designs. The main part of quilling art is decorative details such as flowers, leaves, and from these the designers create pictures. In the beginning of this art form, from 1300 to 1500s, in Europe, nuns used feather quills to decorate holy items, which is why the word Quilling is now used.
– Veneer refers to thin slices of wood (0.6 mm). As it has all the different grains and colours, veneer is used to glue on to fibre boards so that they look like real wood. We use veneer to create different products such as greeting cards, bookmarks, magnets, and 3D designs.
– The procedure is small pieces are cut out of the wood by laser machine. The single pieces then are rearranged by hand on different levels so that it results in a stereoscopic picture. Partly, the wood is colored before.
3D Paper Cutting
– It is marvellous to open a flat piece of paper to see a 3D image. This is done by the hands of talented artists. They use the art to create detailed shapes, movements, wheels and other shapes on a flat surface.
– Shapes and movements are now used in children books; however this originates from ancient science. In the beginning of the 15th century, paper plates and lids were used to explain concepts in astrology, literature, math and anatomy.
