This is a brand new Video Course on a realistic looking whimsical Silk Parrot Tulip just in time for spring. Learn to make the bereathtakingly realistic tulip centre and practise mulitcoloured dyeing of petals for your Silk Parrot tulips.
The rich diversity of tulip flower shapes and colours can be a source of serious inspiration for an artist in any media.
This Video Course celebrates the beauty of Tulip in its numerous colours as well as forms, with the Parrot Tulip being the most whimsical and original of all.
The Video course demonstrates and explains how to dye, shape and create a strikingly realistic Parrot Tulip flower shape: a large single flower with 6 petals. You will learn how to make the oh-so-recognizable tulip centre completely from scratch.
As a stem flower Silk Parrot Tulip can be turned into a headpiece, hair circlet, bracelet, corsage, butttonhole as well as other accessories.
Moreover you can play with the size and number of the petals to create more compact or a larger double parrot tulip instead if you prefer. Use photos of real tulips in books or online for ideas and inspiration. We are restricted neither in colour nor in size here.
With this video course you receive access to 120+ minutes of video instructions from the practising flower artist. Watch the video through the artist’s eyes, follow the instructions and create, create, create!
