A large tea-coloured rose

I must say as an artist I am attracted not so much by the colour but more so by the form in silk flower making. I salivate at the perspective of learning how to make a new type of flower whether it be a humble lilly-of-the-valley, hydrangeas, fuchsias, plumerias, a grape leaf  or a twig of a fur-tree. All of them sound equally attractive. Of course one must not forget roses. Firstly, people seem to be fascinated by this flower which makes it first choice for weddings, birthdays, other important events. Secondly the rose has so many faces, so many different shapes and sizes ranging from a small 5-petal simple flower to a complicated layer-upon-layer-of-petals rosette. This diversity of rose shapes is also very appealing to me.

Here is my latest rose. It is quite a large flower and despite the fact that there are only 40 petals it gives the impression of a dense flower.

Large silk rose

The petals are made of silk crepe and for the leaves I used Indian silk called dupioni, which has some natural imperfections as well as some soft shine.
