What have we been learning in the classroom?

What have we been learning in the classroom???

In the Advanced Wedding Workshop one of the students inquired if I  knew how to make a standard rose into a peony or a garden rose???  Sounds crazy right!

So you are looking at standard roses that are faux peonies and standard roses that look like a Garden rose. 

 So how did we do that???  We break/press the rose off of it's calyx and sheer the top of the petals horizontal.  We then use our cold glue/floral adhesive and paint all the petal ends.

We also have a small disc that is previously prepared to adhere the petals to.  This also get's cold glue/floral adhesive painted on its surface.

The petals and surface adhere....We release the petals which reflex outward....And here are your final pieces.

 This rose has more of a faux peony look. We finished the design with fresh leaves to simulate a calyx and its ready for a hairpiece, placed in a bouquet, or a design.

The teacher(myself) learned from the student....I love to learn & try new things and this was amazing!  Thank you Brandi for asking to try a new design, learning together                          HOW TO DO IT !!!
