Wax Flowers


Fabric paint
Flower thread
Green flower
Aluminium flower wire
Chart paper
Finix paper 

This paper have 2 different textures on either side. It is very handy to work with - can be easily stretched, shrunk and even can be depressed to a cup like shape by using your thumb.


First draw the petals on the chart paper and cut them in different sizes. With the help of these petals cut out the original petals from the finix paper.  It is always better to use the chart paper samples, to draw the outline on the finix paper and cut the petals carefully.  It is stretchable and can give the desired shape of a fresh leaf or a petal. Now paint the petals with the fabric paint. The Finix paper and the fabric paint should be of the same colour. Finix paper is available in different colours, we can have our own colour choice depending upon the thing which we intent to do.

To  make the flower, take a aluminum wire and tie 2 to 3 pips on the top  end. The pips  should  be folded at the center before being tied to the aluminum wire.  Take  two or three small petals and keep it around the pips and tie it with the flower making thread. Arrange the larger petals around the small petals and tie it carefully with out spoiling the shape of the flower. With the green tape wrap  the aluminum wire till the end neatly.
Take a big round bowl  with water and let it boil.  Now place a small bowl with some wax in it and let it continue boiling (double boil). When the wax  melts properly,  dip the flower in the wax and dry it on a news paper. Next day arrange the flowers in a beautiful vase.
