How I made my ranunculus - Page 2

post #16 of 22
Wow, such amazing flowers! Ranunculus are one of my favorites, and yours are by far the best I've seen. Thank you so much for the step-by-step tutorial. I will definitely be trying these soon. One question, how long did you allow your outer petals to dry before adhering to your center? Do you want them to be firm (ie dried on a former or spoon), or flexible? I'm also assuming these petals are not wired, and just the center is. Am I correct?

Thanks again! I am sure this forum, and your lovely work, will be a favorite of many. Look forward to seeing your future work (and more tutorials icon_biggrin.gif ).

I'm sorry that I answer so late, but I'm right now in vacation and have sometimes no Internet! icon_sad.gif

Yes you are correct, Prima! The petals are not wired, and just the center is.

I attached the petals directly, without drying them first. The flower paste is so thin that it will be firm and stable very fast.

For the middle rows of petals I hung the flower upside down and for the lowest rows I've stuck the wire horizontally in floral foam. Just control with the help of a photo or a real ranunkel, that the petals are in the right direction.

Thank you also for your endearing words! It is nice to be greeted so friendly! icon_smile.gif
