Our Studio has prepared a very detailed tutorial on how to work with plastic suede (foamiran) on the example of a wedding wreath with rose buds.
Thin wire #26-28 for buds and leaves and a thicker wire for the base of the wreath
Pliers with cutting pliers
Foamiran (plastic suede) of 2 colours
60 seconds glue
Leaf mold (optional)
You can use foamiran of any colour for buds from the suggested palette, or you can paint it the way we did, with a small transition of colour that will give liveliness to the flowers. Cut out small petals of 1 -1.5 cm from a sheet of foamiran (taking into account that one flower requires 6-8 petals).
Each petal is slightly applied to the iron heated to 100 degrees, twist them and then straighten to give rounded shape. This is what happens))
You can now start making flowers) Cut the thin wire into parts of 4-5 cm. Make small loops at the end of each piece. Take one piece and attach the first petal to it with hot glue twisting it in a tube — thus you hide the loop))
Glue the second petal the same way wrapping it around the first one.The third petal is attached according to the same scheme. There are three petals in the photo.
Continue adding petals. Try to glue them tightly and so that they were at the same height to each other)
The rosebud is starting to open, so glue the petals not so tight) when there are 8 petals, the flower is ready)
Now make leaves and sepals. Cut out the blanks for leaves and sepals from the green sheet of foamiran.
Make notches along the edges of each blank with the same scissors.
Apply the blanks of sepals to the iron and twist them.
Apply the leaves to the iron now, then press them against the mold to transfer the texture of a leaf)
Smooth out and get such a beauty))
Now combine everything together. Put on the sepal on the wire and fix it with hot glue.
Glue the leaves to the wire using the 60 seconds glue. Here's the finished bud with a leaf)
Make many buds and leaves, you will need even much more of them than in this photo for the wreath .
Now start assembling the wreath. Apply the buds to the thick wire and tape them.
Continue making buds and leaves, fixing them with tape. Decide on the number of flowers for the wreath on your own))
We complemented the wreath with large white roses)
And dressed up the bear)
Make loops at the ends of the wreath wire and fasten the ribbons so that you could adjust the size. The wreath is ready))
