Quilled Picture Portrait Of Jesus Christ - Into Thy Hands.....

This quilled picture portrait of Jesus Christ on the cross reminds me of his last words. " into thy hands I commit my spirit". This complements and completes the series of  3 other  Christ's portraits I have done which relate to the passion .

Crown of Thorn
To Calvary
Father Forgive Them

I have used a combination of coils, zig-zag folded shapes (tutorial here) and graphic quilling for this project. I have outlined the portrait in white to achieve the effect of reflected light. I think it helps to enhance the image and bring it out of the white background.

I have tried to make the nose look a bit hooked by arranging the shapes appropriately.

All you wonderful people are so generous with your comments and it encourages me no end to try more difficult project. I would love to hear what you think of this one.


  1. Chris, these images are so alive and insprirational... Thanks for sharing... Some day I wolud like to try to make Jesus face too - I have a very religious freiend and think she will be very happy to receive it! Thanks again.

    1. Hi Maria,
      You should go ahead and try when you are feeling motivated. Just try graphic quilling the outline first. Then its is a case of gluing the basic shapes trying to keep the direction of the shapes to fit the contours of the face. You never know till you try.
