Quick post with a custom order I received a few days ago, a quilled bass guitar in paper graphic.
It is based on a photo of an actual bass guitar, so it has all the details from the original instrument. I drew all the elements of the guitar and then glued them to a cardboard with a printed pattern of vintage wood.
The size of the guilled painting is 15cm * 23cm. I used 120gsm paper and 5mm wide paper strips. The strings were a bit tricky, with only 1mm – 2mm space in between them, so I really had to hold my breath while gluing them.
The bass guitar even has a name – eEva – which I wrote in the top corner. I initially wanted to glue the letters in a straight line, but felt like they look nicer a bit tilted to the sides.
I want to wish everybody “Happy Holidays!” and a “Happy New Year!” filled with joy, health and of course, many creative ideas!
