And now you can start the first steps. First we make a white lilac, then we apply lilac shades. Raw mass very quickly weathering, remember this. Therefore, having pinched the right amount of cold porcelain for work, the rest is tightly closed. Do not forget about this throughout the whole work. We take a drop of mass the size of a pea. We twist our fingers, pressing and forming. So like a three-dimensional droplet. Now cut the scissors wide side of the droplet. Once and again, cross-wise. Do not cut to the end literally 3-4 mm. Fingers carefully spread out the petals. The finished flower is obtained in three steps. We make the shape of the petals in the finished flower with tweezers. Now we cut the length of the wire by half, twisting it. Fold the muck in PVA, and pierce the middle of the middle of the flower with a sharp end and stretch it to the stop. We put in a glass. We let the glue dry. After the glue dries, we remove the petals. Now we make a flower with pointed petals. We sculpt the same drop, but cut with a scissors is not a wide, but a narrow side. The remaining steps are the same as for the first flower. The third kind of lilac flower is unblown. Slightly changes the sequence of steps. Pea masses immediately put on the wire with a drop of glue. And we twist the shape of the droplet when it already sits tightly on the rod. Then cut the scissors with the very tip of the drop. And do not touch her any more. You see how simple and fast. We make as many different colors as patience suffices. Further, we also make lilac flowers from the coldporcelain. In order to get a lilac beautiful shade, toning the mass in the process of kneading. We pick off a piece, which will approximately go to the desired number of flowers, we form a lozenge. And in the center of it we drip a drop of lilac acrylic. Less is better. Because the excess amount of paint will not absorb, but will only get dirty and dirty. We dripped and kneaded until the color was uniform. Too pale - we are still dripping. Mesim, until the desired effect is achieved. When the nemerenoe number of flowers is done,leave them to dry. Such crumbs do not dry more than a day. It must be remembered that when drying, the part decreases in volume by 20%. And drafts should be avoided, so that there are no unpleasant surprises. When all the blanks-flowers are dry, we collectinflorescence, twisting the wire. Seredinki painted yellow. We cut out the leaves with scissors from the rolled mass, painted in green. We make sticks with a stack. We passed it in the kindergarten. We fasten and plant on a branch in the same way as flowers. We collect the whole bouquet. So our masterpiece is ready.
