Foamiran sheets are available in a few stores right now. Its best to buy a few in floral shades and a green one to make leaves. That's what I did ,I bought red, yellow , two shades of pink and a dark green .
My experience of making clay flowers helped me a lot but the technique is very different and hot :)
1 Foamiran sheets
2 Iron /press ( yes the very same we use to press/iron our clothes )
3 Scissors or one can use the die -cut machines and dies , but this is optional. One can
hand-cut petal shapes easily which also opens up limitless opportunities with regard to size and variety of flowers and leaves.
4 Oil pastels , alcohol inks for shading
5 Glue gun
6 Pollen, wires and other common flower making material
7 Molding tools
1 Cut petals according to the flower one is going to make , shade edges with oil pastels.
2 Plug in the press and heat to a low temperature like silk/ wool
3 Now carefully pick up one petal and press it against the heated press. Needs some practise but after a few trials one can do it without burning finger tips.
The foamiran petal will curl with heat and fall off. Pick it up and shape /mold it , keep aside. Do similarly for all the cut petals and leave shapes.
4 Now heat the glue gun and start sticking petals according to the flower one is making. Be careful as hot glue can cause severe burns.
5 Brush off the strands of glue and admire your handiwork !
It is best to join a foamiran flower making workshop to get a clear picture , learn and also see how to do it under guidance.
Now I am eagerly waiting for my order of more foamiran yummy shades to arrive !
