  1. Completing The Rose

    March 29, 2007 by admin

    You have managed to make the middle part of the rose by following the steps in arranging the petals. Now we will proceed to complete the rose.

    Using the curvy shaped petals, put it on every side of the middle bud of the rose. One tips is to put in between two petals so that the new petal wouldn’t be overlapping the existing petals.

    After you have put about 3 curvy petals around the middle part, tie them with wire no.28 and wrap using the brown floral tape. This is to make sure that your rose will look nice without the white wire no.28 visible once the whole rose has been completed.

    Continue to put other curvy petals around the rose until you satisfied with the size and the look of your rose. Repeat the process of tying and wrapping with floral tape.

    Usually a medium size rose will have about 11-13 petals inclusive the middle bud. You have to rearrange the petals once you have tied and wrapped them with floral tape to make sure you have a satisfactory looking nylon rose.

    You have made your first rose by learning and following all the steps online.

  2. Arranging The Petals

    From the last section of shaping the flower petals, we have made two types of petals – one with the curvy shape and another one like a folded bud.

    Take the folded bud and put in the middle. Take the curvy shaped petal and hold at the right side of the folded bud.

    Take another curvy shaped petal and put on the left side. Hold those petals tightly because we are going to tie them up using the flower wire no. 28.

    This is how it will look like once you have tied the petals with flower wire.

    Wrap the part where you tied earlier with floral tape in brown color.

    You have made the middle part of a rose. Good job!


  3. Shaping The Flower Petals

    This will show you how we shape the wire loop into flower petals.

    Using the round shape wire loop which has been wrapped with nylon material, we will proceed to the next step of shaping the petals. Using your fingernails, pinch a bit at the wire. Try to imagine how the petal curves look like.

    After you have pinched every right and left side of the wire loop, it will look like this.

    Take another wrapped wire, this time we will fold it inside.

    Fold the left side into the right side or the vice versa, as long as the petal looks like a middle bud of a rose.

    This is how the folded petal looks like.

    We will continue with arranging the petals to form a rose.


  4. Basic Wire Loop II

    Once you have made all the necessary numbers of wire loops, it’s time to wrap them around the nylon material. The nylon material looks like a woman’s panty hose. It has a variety of colors.

    This is how the nylon material looks like. We will start from one end, inside the nylon material.

    Put the wire loop you have made earlier inside the nylon material. We want the nylon material to wrap all the front and the back of the wire loop.

    The nylon material should envelope both front and back of the wire loop. It should fit snuggly but don’t stretch too hard or you will tear the material.

    This is how it should be once you have stretch the nylon material nicely around the wire loop.

    Once you have satisfied, use a flower wire size 28 and tie around the end of the nylon material and your wire loop.

    Once you have tied the flower wire no. 28 around the material, snip the excess nylon nicely. Wrap the excess wire around the wire loop holder.

    You have successfully wrap your wire loop with the nylon material! Congrats!


  5. Basic Wire Loop

    March 29, 2007 by admin

    Since I have been conducting flower making class using nylon material for beginners level starting from last December, I have been requested to do DIY online guides for those who are unable to attend my class in Selangor.

    So this is the first entry for DIY flower making class. Personally I feel that this is more suitable for intermediate level as you need to use a lot of wire loop to make the rose.

    rdiy1.jpg

    First take the wire and put it around a round bottle or plastic case. In nylon flower basic, all the wire loop should be in round shape. Check the one on the left side of the plastic case. That’s what I want to make – a rounded wire loop.

    rdiye2.jpg

    Pull the wire around the round plastic bottle and tie it in a knot.

    rdiye3.jpg

    After you have tied one end in a knot, leave another end about 1 to 1.5 inch before you cut it with wire cutter.

    rdiye4.jpg

    This is the basic round shape for wire loop that we need to make. For rose, we need about 8-13 of them, up to the size of the rose you would like the end result to be.
