Roses are such a classic flower to recreate and in this course, I'm teaching you my SECRETS to create a really appealing ombre effects within your crepe paper rose! You'll learn my 'tried and tested' formulas for creating 4 beautiful and unique colour gradients, I'll even provide you with a printable PDF sheet that lists down all the specific ratios and colour codes for each ombre version. No additional colouring tools required, so put away your paints and dyes! We're using our good old crepe paper, florist wire, and your cutting + sculpting tools.
Who is this course for?
EVERYONE! Both beginners and experienced paper florists are welcomed to learn! The challenging bit may lie in the sculpting techniques and the large number of petals that we're working with, but with some patience and practice, I'm sure we all can craft gorgeous 'va-va-voom' roses!
What is your teaching style?
I'm so excited to share this tutorial and I'm sharing my own personal techniques and tricks for creating vibrant blooms. However, I never want to discourage you from experimenting and exploring on you own, so after you’ve seen how I made mine, feel free to change up my formula to create your very own unique versions. Your flower shouldn't have to look exactly like mine in the end, because that's the beauty of paper blooms - you get to put your own stamp on your handmade creations! *smiley face*
Do you provide templates and instructions?
Yes most definitely! All my Teachable paid courses comes with a template sheet in PDF form and a Summary Sheet PDF that summarizes all the key steps from the videos. These can be downloaded and printed out for your reference.
Where do I get the materials?
I've added links and my local sources in the text within the course. I can also pack a kit for you so that you'll have all the colours required for the 4 different ombre shades! Kits are sold via my Etsy page.
How do I care for my crepe paper blooms?
If possible, please keep your crepe paper flowers away from moisture, direct sunlight, or any harsh indoor lighting... it's paper after all! Nonetheless, fading is quite normal especially for the darker shades. You may consider purchasing a UV Protection spray too if you'd like to avoid any fading (though the faded shades do have a nice vintage feel to them too)
How do I show off my completed blooms?
I would love to see your creations! Do feel free to tag me @misspetalandbloom if you're on instagram.
It would be wonderful if no one copies, reproduces, redistributes, or resells any part of MP&B’s videos/pattern/ templates/ instructions. I sincerely hope that out of mutual respect to me as an artist and instructor, that you would not take this content and teach it to others for profit.
However, you are more than welcome to sell the completed bloom. If you don't mind, accreditation to Miss Petal & Bloom would be awesome (i.e. just a note somewhere to credit me and the video, as simple as that!). I would sincerely appreciate this so much, because your support and acknowledgement allows me to keep doing what I love to do. :)
