This tutorial is designed to introduce the elements of realistic silk flower painting. You will find it particularly useful if you want to learn how to handle delicate silks in flower making.
It is impossible to imagine a cottage summer garden without the colourful fragrant sweet peas. This delicate flower comes in a wide variety of colours so that everyone can pick their favourite. Making a flower as fragile as sweet peas out of silk requires patience and precision from the artist.
The thorough step-by-step detailed photo tutorial reveals the secrets of fragile silk sweet pea flowers, foliage and even a pea pod. You will be able to create a wearable brooch with silk sweet peas and hopefully many more wonderful pieces with this rather unusual flower.
With more than 200 pictures explaining in detail the whole process of creating your own silk sweet pea brooch, the 119 page pdf tutorial (no hard copy is available) will unlock the secret of the cottage garden favourite. Sweet pea flowers can be used in jewellery, hat trims, as hairpieces and other accessories. I have included the pattern which you can enlarge or reduce in size depending on your project. The photo tutorial comes with an additional video that demonstrates most tricky points for you.
To create the silk sweet pea flowers you will require some specialist millinery tools. Please refer to the photo which shows which tools (or similar) you will need for this tutorial.
