This vase and mini-bowl were completed last September.  I had to spend a great deal of time in waiting rooms so I used the beehive quilling technique to help pass the time.

I started the vase by cutting down a cone shaped piece of foam and fitting it to the bottom of a 6 inch foam ball.  I wrapped the whole thing in plastic wrap to hold it together and keep the glue from sticking to the project.

Then I started applying the beehive quilled strips.  I started on the bottom with white and added two gray shades.   I would have liked to use more gray shades and have a more gradual color gradation but I was in a situation of using the color I had on hand.

After all the gray and white were glued and pinned.  I lined the top with a row of black.  Then removed it from the form.
