We are completing a series of materials about drying flowers and today we are learning how to make a picture from dried plants.
We are completing a series of materials about drying flowers and today we are learning how to make a picture from dried plants
You will need:
- the basis for the picture (drawing paper, thick colored paper, packaging cardboard)
- fabric (silk, cotton, linen, velvet) pasted on a thick backing
- scissors, tweezers
- PVA glue (or other quick-drying glue). The glue should not be very liquid, so that it does not leave drops on the plants and does not spread.
1. We lay out the intended composition on a flat surface, without gluing. Leave free space around the edges for the frame. You can correct the shape of the petals and leaves in advance with scissors.
2. We glue every detail to the background. Working with dry flowers requires care, so it's best to use tweezers and apply glue drop by drop to the center of the back of the flower.
3. After the glue has dried, insert the picture into the frame under the glass. The composition with a bouquet can be supplemented with appliqué by cutting out a vase or other decorations. Use the same technique to decorate postcards or candles.
