Research & Development : Ball Dahlias


Ball Dahlias …

My favorite flower … with more than a hundred petals

I downloaded a bunch of dahlia pictures … and … start the research process with … what else … counting the petals

Next, I will recreate the petals using scrap fabrics, and then construct it … and if I like the result (if the size and the proportion look good enough for me) … I’ll create my patterns, triple the cardstock I made the pattern with … and then glaze it with liquitex gel. It always bugs me when the edges of my patterns start to curl …

I’m not ready to upload the pictures of my dahlias yet … I need to get a nice fabric to make my first non-scrap-fabric version of it …

Give me 2 days, ‘k :)
