Insert another taped wire through holes in an opposite section of the cuff, and twist it to secure it. Lay the corsage atop the cuff, and wire it to the cuff with the taped wires. Wire and tape individual flowers. Finish by gluing Allium and Nerine blossoms and raspberry leaves into the corsage with liquid floral adhesive. 034materials Wrist cuff from Forever 21; übermatte Color Finish spray (Crema) from Design Master Color Tool; Oasis Floral Adhesive, Oasis Florist Wire (24 gauge) and Floratape Stem Wrap from Smithers-Oasis Company; sharp clippers; spray roses (Rosa spp.), pincushion flowers (Scabiosa spp.), white and terra-cotta Persian buttercups (Ranunculus asiaticus), Allium spp., Guernsey lilies (Nerine sarniensis), raspberry leaves (Rubus spp.) Floral design by Susan McLeary • Photos by Amanda Dumouchelle a wrist corsageSEASONS ~ Chapter Title i.e Spring 01 04 02 05 03 Make a ring of flat cane to fit the outer edge of the opening for your container. Glue Salix viminalis sticks around the armature using your glue gun. Cut six pieces of paddle wire about16inches in length. Evenly around the ring, wrap a wire around the flat cane atthe halfway point of the wire, and twist several times. Pierce Sedum morganianum leaves on each stick, and secure them with floral adhesive. Start weaving flat cane around the wires using a spiral tatami technique until the desired size for the armature is achieved. Be sure to always twist the wire exactly the same number of times in order to maintain the shape and symmetry of the armature. 038 SEASONS ~ SpringFloral design by Leopoldo Gómez spin materials Ranunculus asiaticus (Persian buttercups), Tulipa ‘Dream Touch’ (double peony-flowered tulips), Eucalyptus gunnii (cider gum), Achillea millefolium (yarrow), Salix matsudana‘Tortuosa’ (curly willow), Salix viminalis (dried basket willow), Sedum morganianum (burro’s tail), glass container, flat cane, paddle wire, glue gun, glue sticks liquid floral adhesive.Next >
