I decided to share a tutorial on how to make such an orchid sprig:
For this you need:
- copper wire with the diameter of 1.5-2 mm;
- thin copper wire for winding;
- the finest needle you have;
- Iris thread;
- PVA glue;
- paints for batik;
And, of course, your good mood :)
Cut approximately 31 pcs of wire, 40 cm each. Take the needle and make 70 tight twists around it so that the spring was even.
Remove the spring from the needle, stretch it a little bit in the shape of a peta and start winding the thread on his frame anticlockwise.
Then attach the slightly elongated shape of the petal and begin to wind the thread in turns, starting from the middle, counterclockwise.
For one flower you need 5 petals and a stamen in the middle. Stamens can be made of beads by simply picking one on a wire and twisting it. In the end, you should have:
Continue shaping the flower.
The stem is wrapped with the thin wire.
Now take a brush and paint vivifying the flower :)
Make several such flowers. It depends on the length of the sprig you want to have. Next, collect all flowers in one twig twisting them to each other with the wire for winding. Twist tight along all trunk. It will take some time. Then finish with the tape - use brown or green.
All you need now is to find a proper pot in your bins or planter and to 'plant' the sprig. This is done simply. Dissolve plaster, pour it into the pot, put the sprig and wait for drying.
Here are flowers you can make using this technique:
Thank you for attention!
