This ornamental piece is completely handmade, each element starting from a sheet of paper. The base and border are cut from 300gsm paper and are precisely assembled using glue and a set of tweezers. The inside artwork is made by bending, folding, and curling 160gsm 0.25" paper strips into the desired shapes and then attaching them to the base and border using glue. The piece comes with a silver hanging cord.
This artwork comes unframed - it does not come in a frame and is not behind glass. Paper quilling is deceptively sturdy - please reference the video above to see how the paper doesn't bend or move as I handle the piece. To help the longevity of the piece, it has been sprayed several times with a UV acrylic coating. The base and border pieces have had Mod Podge applied to further seal the artwork to protect it from light, water, and general elements. Feel free to handle the piece as much as you want but remember, it's still paper. It should not be exposed to water.
Canson Mi-Teintes paper has been primarily used to create this piece, which offers excellent protection against aging. It is pulp-dyed, light-resistant, and acid-free.
