November 3, 2016October 16, 2016 by Sharon M Christy Sherman demonstrated how she makes flowers at our June guild meeting. She showed us her process to make irises, roses, and calla lilies. Christy started with a Skinner blend and cut out the shapes. Here is the assembled flower. Notice the texture she added to the petals. Sometimes she will follow a diagram. Here is an an example she has on her phone. Here is a cut out petal and an assembled flower. Christy made 2 Calla Lilies and positioned them together. Makes a nice broach. These are some of the cutters she uses to make the petals of her flowers. They can also be cut out freehand or using a template. Rose assembled and petals shaped to look realistic. Some of the steps taken to assemble the rose Starting with a single petal wrapped around the center of the rose... another petal gets attached..... wrapping and distorting to fit together right. Here is a wonderful collection of leaves and flowers, tendrils and I think I even see a snake in there! A collection of roses made by Christy.
