Vortex coil hair slides

Did you notice those multicoloured vortex coils lying on the side in my last post? We'll I decided that a couple of them would be ideal for fixing to some hair slides.

I created these particular vortexes by 'squashing' two wheatear shapes that I had made using a 'sandwich' of different coloured strips (green joined to blue joined to green, and mauve joined to pink joined to purple).  I think they have turned out looking like a bit like sweets (or what I believe my American friends would call 'candy')! Here in the UK, we have a multi-coloured selection of sweets known as 'Liquorice Allsorts', and that's exactly what these remind me of!

I'd like to include a credit here for Licia Politis who first invented the vortex coil. Thanks, Licia - it's a really great shape!

  5. hi Phillippa, I love your liquorice allsorts hair slides and the way you had added different colours into the shape when making the vortex coil. Lovely vortex coil centres!
