I have enjoyed very much sculpting these beautiful delicate flowers of late. I hand-dyed crêpe paper in different food dyes to achieve natural, variegated petals. I love the texture of the crêpe paper. It's beautiful to stretch and shape using different materials. The small, fine, inner petals of the peonies are all single layers of paper but the outer petals and those of the anemone are larger, thicker and multi-layered (and in some instances, multi-coloured). This is an art form I would very much like to improve upon. I am forever in awe of mother nature but perhaps a little bit more so after attempting to imitate her creative prowess in this way!
