Articles made of artificial flowers, kanzashi or topiary, do not cease to excite the imagination of knitters. When creating these colors the masters use a variety of materials: corrugated paper and satin ribbon, organza and even dried flowers. In this article I want to tell you about the delicate colors, made of a unique material, Tamarana.
Faniran this elastic suede, innovative material appeared relatively recently. Homeland it is Iran and literal translation the name can be interpreted as “Iranian foam”. A great material with endless potential for creativity. Easily takes any shape when heated and retains it after cooling. Its products almost not subject to deformation. Thanks to these and these properties tameran ideal for both professional artists and children’s art. Someone make him a doll, who, by various decorative elements, or the massive volume and design to design a variety of celebrations. I can not do without flowers, among which one of the most popular is the rose.
What you will need to work
- Of course, tameran.In our case we will use two colors: peach will go to create the Bud and brown for the leaves;
- a piece of foil;
- patterns of petals and leaves;
- floral wire;
- iron melt and scissors.
The process of creating roses from Tamarana
First using paper templates, cut out the required number of petals and leaves. The petals will need four pieces: three leaves and one calyx(separate the outer part of the calyx, green or any other color).
Then heated to the average temperature of the iron applied briefly each element of the next flower. The heated material is more flexible and allows to give workpieces the desired shape. Folding heated petal “accordion” and mash it until it becomes as thin as possible. Thin material, just to give the most realistic texture almost completely similar to a real flower.
The leaves are processed similarly to the petals. They are thinner, the less the created flower will be different from live roses. Now that we have made all preparations, you can begin to assemble the rose. First, take the “bulb” of foil and pierced it with an awl in the middle is inserted into the hole of floral wire.She will wear the petals and fix with the help of glue.
The first petal, you need to stick to the base of the foil as tightly as possible. The second a little more freely, and by the same principle each subsequent petal freer another. In the end we get the drop-down lush rosebud.From the bottom glue piece of paper performs the role of chashelistiki and on top three leaves.That’s it, our delicate rose of Tamarana ready.
This flower is made in soothing pastel colours is ideal for original brooches or hair clips.
