The Art Of Pressed Flowers And Leaves
- Various & Misc Crafts, Gifts to Make
A whole new look!
The art of pressing flowers is enjoying a renaissance, and Jennie Ashmore teaches new fans how to make the most of this rediscovered craft. She covers everything from the choice of flowers and leaves, to the various methods of pressing them, to designing with the finished pressed pieces. See how to achieve symmetry, use color, and combine the flowers with watercolor and gouache, painted backgrounds, and gold and silver paper. Learn to make lovely, frameable designs from bouquets, make pictures from plant pieces and more—these don’t resemble the typical pressed flowers of the past at all, they’re almost mosaics! Templates will help you get started, and a plant directory shows you what various plants look like when pressed.
