This is the second class that I'd attended recently, to catch up on my missed ones. And it was in this one that I could really see how my 3 months of efforts would shape up. Until now, we were just making white flowers, which though looked good, didn't really look like the real thing. And many of the times, I simply wasn't convinced about the resemblance to a particular flower. Some just looked like little kids interprations! And I was bored! Bored! Probably you were too, viewing ALL those white flowers!
So this week, we actually got to see how our flowers would look, all colored and airbrushed and everything! And boy, were they pretty!! This was what convinced me that I was actually learning something productive! Read on, and you'll see how. Unfortunately, this was the ONE day I forgot to take my camera, the day I needed it the most. Sorry, the pictures aren't too clear, they were taken by my phone camera!
But first, we had to make some flowers!! First up, the briar rose, which looks, and is made similar to the azalea.
The petals being made.
Up next, one of my favorite flowers!! The poinsettia!! It was soo easy.
It may not look like much now, but wait for a bit, and you'll see what I'm saying!
The main essence of this session was coloring the flowers, i.e making them 100% ready for display. Most of the flowers coming up were colored by an airbrush, however, I don't plan on investing in one soon, not until I perfect the flowers atleast.
Most of the flowers we colored -
A different view to give you perspective -
Hibisbcus. I love this flower, in real life. One of my favorites!
Carnation. Super blurry picture, but I love making this flower. So easy, and yet so pretty!
The rose! I'm going to start handing these out to people, they are so adorable! :)
The Briar Rose. Never heard of this flower before, but it sure looks elegant!
Aaand I've saved the best for the last! The best looking flower! Don't you agree?
