Rose Sculpture Painting

Sculpture painting, also known as 3 d decorative plaster flowers is the trendiest craft nowadays. The large voluminous flowers are very eye catching and look fantastic as home decor. These flowers are made with palette knifes and special sculpture paste which stays put and retains structure and height as soon as it is applied.
 A quick introduction about floral sculpture painting is in order. It has been made popular by an enterprising Russian young lady who also makes and markets the sculpture paste in several delectable shades. She also takes workshops and has trained several people in this art.
Welding the palette knifes is easy and its pure magic to see the flower take shape in a few deft knife strokes! Practice makes perfect and one can master the knife strokes and make beautiful decorative panels and floral frames for home decor for self use or gifting purposes.

Sculptural Painting Flowers

 Sculptural painting or knife painting is my latest hobby and now 3 d voluminous flowers are blooming on my craft table! Flowers are my all time favorite , I have made them in various materials and its fun learning a new technique. These flowers are made with  palette knifes and thick paste , both  have to be deftly handled to give desired shape of petals and leaves.
 The thick paste flowers harden in a couple of days and make awesome decor , many different flowers  can be made with the same technique and the same 3 d results.
These sculpture paste flowers are different from air dry clay ones in several ways including the technique. I am happy to utilize my surplus craft mdf supplies into gorgeous decor pieces while learning a new hobby.
