This fabric flower making book with instructions is only for the real fans of the craft!
Roses have always been popular with artists and customers alike. And there are so many varieties and variations of them that one book will not be able to cover. Nevertheless in this book we find rose buds, open roses with stamens, multipetal blooms and other varieties. It also includes a couple of other flowers such as lily, delphinium etc.
The fabric flower making book is illustrated with rather detailed colour photographs which demonstrate main steps of the process including how to dye petals and leaves using dyes for silk. Those artists who do not feel confident about painting silk for their floral masterpieces will find it useful. Also, this is an opportunity to see how Japanese artists do it.
The shaping of petals and leaves is given using schemes as well as photos. Being able to read and understand Japanese can be very useful here without doubt, but even if you do not know the language a lot can be understood, adapted and used when creating your own roses.
All the flowers are created using a set of heated millinery tools for shaping petals and leaves. Most templates given in the book (as each rose has its own full sized template) can be adapted and used for making leather roses too. This is one of the best fabric flower making books an artist can have in their library.
