An inspiring, practical and gorgeous guide to crafting the most realistic and artful paper flowers for arrangements, art, décor, wearables and more, from San Francisco botanical artist Tiffanie Turner.
The Fine Art of Paper Flowers is an elevated art and craft guide that features complete step-by-step instructions for over 30 of Tiffanie Turner’s widely admired, unique, lifelike paper flowers and their foliage, from bougainvillea to English roses to zinnias. In the book, Turner also guides readers through making her signature giant paper peony, shares all of her secrets for special paper treatments, candy-striping, playing with color and creating botanical imperfections, and shows how to turn paper flowers into gorgeous garlands, headdresses, bouquets and more. These stunning creations can be made from simple and inexpensive materials and the book's detailed tutorials and beautiful photography make it easy to achieve dramatic and lifelike results.
Artist and architect Turner dispels the misguided notion that crepe-paper flowers are for pep rallies and pom-poms in this illuminating DIY book. Combining the skills and aptitude befitting her dual careers, she offers a study in the use of delicate papers, precision tools, wire, hot glue, and various blending brushes to create botanical imitations that one is hard-pressed to distinguish from the real thing. The book is laid out in a series of tutorials that include templates for specific flower types, information about required tools, and step-by-step instructions. Specialty sections further elaborate various techniques on how to work with color and create additional elements such as leaves and buds. The author also includes an additional section about creating items for costuming and hairstyling. Under the mantra "You must make what you see, not what you think you see," this book guides artisans to astonishing results. Color photos.
