Artificial flowers from different materialshands It is difficult to find people who are not attracted by the delicate petals of orchids or chrysanthemums, the fragrance of roses or lilacs, and snowdrops just bursting out from under the snow. Bright bouquet is not only a wonderful gift and decoration for the house, but also a nice token of attention to the beloved person. When there is no money for a bouquet of fresh flowers or for health reasons (for example, with allergies) you are not able to transfer their smell, the same elegant artificial flowers made with your own hands will come to the rescue. It's fun and easy, as you can see for yourself, having become acquainted with the variants of flower compositions described below. Before you stand the choice of material, which is preferable to use for making flowers. We recommend fabric, and best of all - polymer (plastic) clay. This clay is produced in various colorshades, working with it is quite convenient. Polymer clay can be found in virtually any art shop, where the necessary varnish is sold, which then covers the finished product. Organize a place to work should be before the beginning of his work. The working surface must be covered with paper material (unnecessary magazines or newspapers), because certain types of clay can leave marks on the surface. Now you can take on your own making flowers. As a sample, try to make a rose. It should begin with the preparation of petal forms. For this purpose, take a tight cardboard from which to cut several petals (they are not necessary to do the same), and until they need us, let them lie on the sidelines. Next, separate from the piece of polymer clay the right size part and wrinkle it until it is soft enough. Like a dough roll the clay, taken for making petals. The thickness of the "test" is selected independently, we, in turn, recommend 1-2 millimeters. Place the blanks of cardboard petals on the clay and roll them around the contour with a clerical knife. By analogy, make the rest of the petals of our roses. As the center of the future flower, make a small yellow ball around which fix all the petals. The remains of the clay that turned out below do not hurry to cut. It is better to fold them into a long rod. For the same technology, make the necessary number of flowers and allow them to dry out. Due to its density, roses from clay are obtainedtoo weighty and do not stick well on the stems. It is quite easy to get out of this situation. It is necessary to place a spherical piece of foam in the previously prepared flower pot instead of the soil, which should fill the empty space of the pot and protrude slightly over its upper part, forming a kind of mound. Then, taking the flowers for the stems that you made from the remaining clay, carefully and firmly insert into the foam. Aesthetic appearance he does not break, because behind the petals they will not be noticeable. That's all, a bouquet of lovely roses made! As we said before, another suitablefor artificial flowers material - fabric. For those who only make the first steps in this form of hand-made, it is preferable to use dense types of fabrics that will perfectly retain the shape. Ideal options here are velvet, silk with glitter, monotonous atlas. If you in the past were engaged in needlework associated with fabrics and you still have shreds, they will also be useful to us for highlighting some details, so save them. Before starting work it is not enough to decide on thesource material. The tissue should be properly treated with a special solution. Its preparation does not require special knowledge or reagents, and the necessary ingredients will be found in almost every home. Pour a glass of warm boiled water three teaspoons of gelatin and stir a little. after the gelatin has completely dissolved in water, pour the solution onto the fabric and leave to dry, never squeezing it. After absolute drying, the material for the future product is ready. The bulk of almost all colors arepetals, which we draw on the fabric. This can be done "by hand" or with the help of some stencils. The application of contours should not spoil the future flower, so do not use a ballpoint pen or pencils for this. It is better to replace them with simple cosmetic soap or spetsmelom. Cutting out the necessary number of petals, we proceed to their arrangement with each other. It is not recommended to use glue, as it covers the fabric with a crust, sometimes overflows and leaves specks. More practical is the connection of the petals with thread and needle. To achieve the bud's splendor, it is possible, if one is imposed one after another by a series of petals. In the middle of the flower is to sew a rhinestone or a shiny stone, attractive playing in the sun. The creation of artificial flowers provides a wide space for the flight of your imagination. Here you are free to make either a separate flower or create an elegant composition. Refresh the boring interior of the house or decorate one of the items of the wardrobe with unusual color shades and shapes best hand-made colors. Try it!
