And we proceed to manufacturing. For the whole composition we will produce 10 large flowers and 5 smaller ones. 14 more buds and 20 leaflets. We will work without templates. Let's start with large petals for flowers. Cut white strips of 2 cm wide from white suede. Then of them we make 50 squares with a side of 2 cm.
Next, cut out the petals from each blank. We keep the square in one corner, and the rest is just neatly rounded.
And we make petals for smaller flowers from 1.5 cm squares and cut 63 pieces.
In the same way, we make leaves from green suede using blanks of 2 cm in size. We cut only the side corners.
From the same green blanks in 2 cm need to cut sepals for 14 buds. This detail looks like a flower with 4 petals. The square should be folded in half two times and get a square, divided into 4 equal parts. And the corners of the square will serve as the tops of the sepal. Scissors carve only grooves between the petals.
Now go to the wire. For leaves, cut 13 pieces of 8 cm in length. Buds need 14 pieces, 6 cm in length. And for flowers we will use 16 pieces of 5 cm. We will start processing all these details from the blanks for flowers. We stitch three stamens into six segments. And to the remaining 10 parts fasten five stamens. And we put a floristic green ribbon on these prepared parts from above, well closing the joints of the wire with the stamens. Then follows the tape to pass through all the prepared wire billets.
Now we move on to processing all the cut-out details. Let's start with the green leaves. First, cut small incisions along the edge. Under the warmth of the lighters, they open nicely. Then you need streaks of leaves. They can be done in two ways. The first is to simply draw a toothpick on the front of the sheet. And in the second method, we heat the workpiece with a lighter and quickly apply it to the plastic print of the sheet texture.Carefully we press and we also get streaks.
Next, turn out the leaves with green pastel do a little tint around the edges. Just with a damp cloth we collect some paint and run it on the leaves on both sides. Additionally, we warm up quite a bit with a lighter on the wrong side of the middle of the sheet and bend the part in half, reinforcing the center vein.
We continue to work with the leaves. On 13 cooked large stalks fasten leaves. You can simply glue the details to the center, and we will do it with increased holding. Twice the wire from the base upwards with a wire and then glue the edges of the wire and the bottom of the leaf. Then, if you wish, you can additionally tint the junction.
Now turn to the sepals. It is necessary to tint them from two sides, first two opposite parts and on the second side the other two. And the processing is very simple.We fold the part again twice in half and scroll with our fingers, then straighten it out a bit.
Then begin to make the basics for buds. It will take 14 pieces of foil with a side of about 8 cm. We roll the balls. The value is determined by the length of the small petals, which should completely go from bottom to top on the foil. Angle scissors do the deepening of the ball. And on the wire on one side we make a small loop. Then insert the wire into the recess and firmly press the upper edge of the foil to the wire. We get a stem with a base for a bud.
It's time to work with flower petals. Let's start with staining. Wet wipe dial pink paint and pass through the lower corner of the petal on both sides. Then we put several pieces together and paint the sides of the cut.We process all the petals in the same way.
Now you need to add a new shape to the painted petals. To help, we will use a glass decorative ball. We hold the petal by the sharp edge, heat the bottom with a cigarette lighter, quickly place it on foam rubber and immediately press it with a ball.
Small indentations are obtained. All the petals do the same.
Now we have all the basic details ready. And go to the assembly of buds. For one, you will need a stem with a stem, a sepal and 3 small petals. On the foil we glue the petals in turn, the main thing is to completely close the entire base. Then insert the wire in the middle of the green part, lift it up and stick it onto the bud.
Next we will do small flowers. Prepare a stem with 3 stamens and 4 petalssmaller size.
Glue the petals around the stamens in a circle, glue only the edge of the blanks. Small flowers turn out to be half-closed. And that would be large flowers were opened, you need to additionally on each petal to bend down a sharp edge. A little warm lighter and correct the slope down. Only it is necessary to consider, that the concave part of a petal and a bend of a corner were directed downwards. And when assembling the flower itself, we use the stem with 5 stamens and five petals. Which we try to glue only at the bent bottom of the part. Arrange them in a circle.
Now let's start collecting a brooch. Initially, we prepare the blank for the brooch on a wire base, this will give a strong base to the whole brooch. Take a thin and thicker wire in the amount, a very small base and adhesive tape.
From the thick wire make the letter" T ". The width of the upper crossbar should correspond to the length of the small base.With a thin wire through the holes in the base we fasten it to the bent wire. We attach the resulting structure to ourselves and determine the rotation of the needle fastener, cut off the extra length of the leg. A green tape wrapped and closed all the connections, irregularities. We wind the long edges of the wire separately, they will serve as stalks in a brooch.
The brooch will have 4 buds, one small and two large flowers. We use 3 leaves on the stem and three additional ones, without wire. For the convenience of assembling the entire composition, we will make several bouquets. We first fix together 3 buds.
Place a leaf with a stem under each bud.
Next bouquet of two colors, large and small. We place them a little lower than the first.
And in the last bunch there will be a bud and a large flower. And we fasten it even lower on our design. It remains only to glue 3 leaves on your own.It is advisable to close the ugly places. Curl can be twisted from the thin edge of the wire. On the seamy side, nothing will glue, there will be only a clasp. The brooch is ready.
Getting started on the rim. The first step is to process the iron bezel itself. First, on the outer part we glue double-sided tape. If the tape is wider than the desired size, you just need to cut off the excess. Next, remove the second film and fasten a thin strip of olive leaf, and trim the excess. At the edges of the rim we make an additional suede winding. And the basis for the decoration of the rim is ready.
When assembling, we proceed in the same way as a brooch. We will collect everything in bunches and fix them alternately. And in the free space immediately pre-arrange all the details. We make paired bouquets. Two topmost bouquets that will be in the middle. Two large flowers and a leaf on the stem. In the second pair we connect a bud, a leaf and a small flower. The third pair of two large flowers with a leaf. The next pair will be two small flowers with a leaf on the stem. And there were bouquets of three buds.
And now all this needs to be fixed to the base. Determine the middle of the rim. Apply the first two bouquets closer to the center, cut off the extra wire. We glue and additionally use floristic tape, which we wind completely around the base.
The following bouquets also try on and attach below. Bouquets are not very close. Tape wrapped without gaps on the inside. The wrong side should also be beautiful.
And so in turn we attach all the bouquets prepared. And the tape reaches the very bottom of the base.
And there were a loose leaf, which should be placed just on the bezel. Be sure to sticking one last for the last buds, and the rest are placed across the whole structure from two sides to places of not beautiful joints.We spread flowers, because they are on our wire. The bezel is ready.
Good luck to all!
