Spongebob Squarepants and Friends

Who doesn't love this cheeky, squarepant wearing sponge, who lives in a pineapple and hangs out at the crabshack with his friends Patrick and Squidward? Love them or not, they are super unique characters and gave me more than enough challenges to re-create them in 3D Quilling!

Spongebob Squarepants

These three characters: Patrick Starfish, Spongebob Squarepants and Squidward are the tallest, most detailed and most challenging of all of the Kurlikins characters.

Spongebob (9 cm/ 3.5in) took me a while to work out how to make a square shape using 3D Quilling techniques- which are essentially all circled shapes. Once I had that sorted, I then had to find a way of making him look spongy enough. The fantastic beehive technique done to the extreme came to the rescue- and I am more than impressed with the results.

Squidward (height: 11cm/ 4.3in) presented the challenge of getting the shapes right to make his interesting shaped head. Loads of sculpting, pushing, squeezing and patience finally got it looking right. I love how he turned out!

Patrick (height: 8cm/ 3.1in) although looking very straight forward as far as 3D Quilling shapes go- was a little more difficult then expected. His size and shape required a lot more strips then planned, and then a lot of moulding to get him into the right shape.
