Quilling Glue Basics - 5 Helpful Tips Do you have a hard time with glue showing on your quilling? In this video I’m going to share all the gluing tips I’ve learned since I started in 2006. Tip 1 – Smear Your Glue Puddle I often see instruction to pour out some glue, and then to dip your quilling into the puddle, but it’s easy to overcoat your quilling strip this way, which means your glue will be seen on your final work surface. Instead, I prefer to use another piece of plastic to smear the puddle flat. This way the depth of your glue puddle is very shallow. This allows you to gently press the innermost coils into the glue, coating every bit of it. When I pick it up, I pre-loosen the inner coils so the glue’s suction won’t destroy the smooth arcs. After lifting, I always turn it upside down to check if I’ve missed coating any of it. If I did, I’ll simply re-dip again. Tip 2 - Missed Spots Now, if you coiled your strip unevenly, it’s quite easy to miss getting it dipped fully into the glue. Or maybe you missed dipped a certain section. What do you do if your strip is already on your work surface? Let me show you how to add glue in a case like this. Apply glue to a scrap piece of quilling paper and slip it under the areas that are missing glue, the press your strip down. Tip 3 - Glue Dipping and Smearing Cards When smearing my glue for dipping my pieces, I prefer to use a plastic card that has a matte surface rather than a high gloss surface. I usually use the Oyster card I got when I visited London. Tip 4 - How to Undo Glued Pieces As all quillers know, our work is hard to undo. If you’ve glued something down, don’t just tear it up. You’ll end up tearing the fibres of your work surface. Instead, I extend an x-acto knife and slowly slice through the glue horizontally. This is another reason why it’s good to use as little glue as possible. If you have some stubborn bits, you may need to scrape the surface a bit. I then use an eraser to gently scour the fragments. Finally I use a bone folder to smoothen the surface as much as possible. I only remove my quilling as a last resort, and you’ll get the best results the faster you make your decision before the glue fully dries. I do suggest that you practice on a scrap piece first. Tip 5 - My Favorite Quilling Glue Brand I’m often asked what brand of glue I use. My favourite is Aleene’s Tacky Glue because it’s thick and dries fast. I use the large bottle when I need to smear it for dipping, and I put it in a fine tip bottle for applying directly onto my quilling strips. I store it upside down in a shot glass with a wet tissue at the bottom so it doesn’t clog and is always ready to use. I hope these tips help you with your quilling. I love reading your comments and hearing which tip you found the most helpful, because then it helps me decide what to show you in the future. Or if you have any tips to share, please comment so we can all learn from you as well.

Hello again! I'm so delighted to share with everyone here about this quilling flower tutorial that I uploaded on my YouTube channel yesterday. Those who subscribes to my YouTube channel probably have already watched the tutorial. If not, please head straight to the video now at the link HERE to find out how you can make this Teardrop Swirl quilling flower. As always, I decided to share the tutorial because there was so many requests for it. I get most of the requests from my followers on Instagram. They have seen photos of the Teardrop Swirl quilling flowers that I shared there early this year. At the time I was still experimenting on the shape and method of making it so that the shape will always turn out the same each time I make it. Now that I am happy with the method, I could share how to make it with everyone :). For this quilling flower, I still use the same tool to make it, which is the flea comb. Same with the Triangle Twist flower, I still comb 3 different coloured quilling papers that are joined together. The only difference is how I shape the quilling paper after combing and pinching it. I cut my own quilling papers using my craft knife and metal ruler on a cutting mat. I still use the same A4 coloured printing paper which is 80gsm, so it's not that thick. I rarely shred my papers nowadays. I kinda prefer the clean cut quilling papers. I haven't tried making this flower using thicker papers and I don't think I will. I love making it using the 80gsm type of paper as it is not too thick or thin. As for the size of the quilling strips...I'm using the same size quilling strips that I used for making the Triangle Twist quilling flower. Which is 5mm (width) and 297mm (length). But if you wish to use a bigger size or smaller size, it is totally fine...all up you, whatever you are comfortable with, whatever works for you. It is also ok to use shredded papers. But I prefer to not use shredded papers when making this vortex design as you want to be able to see the swirl design clearly. Shredded papers just doesn't give that kind of satisfaction for me. The Teardrop Swirl quilling flower you see above is made using 3 quilling strips joined together but you can also use 2 quilling strips to make each petal. I've tried making a petal using just one quilling strip unfortunately it was just too difficult to do. With the Triangle Twist, I was able to make the petal using one quilling strip. So 2 or 3 quilling strips for this Teardrop Swirl quilling flower is just nice! Not less than that. At the moment, I could only make stock of this Teardrop Swirl quilling flower. I want to make a lot of them in different colours and sizes. When the time comes, I want to use them for certain projects. It's always good to prepare early. Well, that's all for April. This year, I'm focusing more on taking care of my health. Once in a while I'll try to make some quilling tutorials (I do hope that is possible, in shaa Allah), I'm praying for my good health. Do pray for me too ya! Haha!
