Flower stamen question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi there :)

 

Just wondering what the difference is between the stamen that have wire and the stamen that have string, besides the obvious! LOL!  I know one is wire and one is string...lol...but are they used for different types of flowers? I have a package of double headed stamen that are on a string that was given to me and I can't seem to find anything on the internet that indicates how these are used. I can imagine how the wired ones are used but not the string ones.

 

Any ideas??

 

Thanks!

They are for different types of flowers; I've mainly seen the strings cut, bunched together with floral tape and dipped in egg whites or something to make them sturdy.

Here's a link to another CC members blog, she does amazing work and has tutorials on making both types of stamens and using them. Visuals help me.

Thanks for your reply and the tutorial link :) While the tutorial is very informative, I was hoping to find some direction on how to use the stamen that I already have :)
