Japanese Rice Paper

Dick Blick

Hanky Panky -scroll down to bottom of page

Pearce Miniatures - sells packs of rice paper for flower making (you get 6 sheets of 5 x 6 inches) quite reasonably - a good manageable size for painting.  They also sell the heavier, crepe-like, silk linen paper for thicker leaves and flowers.  It can be more heavily worked and scored for flowers where you want more substance and depth (also 6 sheets of 5 x 6 paper)

Research/ Inspiration about Flowers

 

Miniature Flower Tips/Hints

  • Using a mouse pad, or a piece of foam, the kind in the kid's craft section,  poke tiny pinholes in it, mist the foam and then using the stylus press your petals into the pinhole. That makes a "tight" bloom.
  • When making punched flowers, always spray/mist your mousepad with water, then sprinkle petals on surface and shape. A wet surface helps the petals retain their cupped shape. 
  • Good choices for making flowers are rice paper, (in the art department at Michael's), and white coffee filters. Rice paper can usually be found at stores that sell art supplies, like Dick Blick. Both papers can be colored with almost any media and stand up to water well. Use watercolors and thinned acrylics and try to color unevenly, to create different shades of a color.
  • To use crepe paper, iron fairly flat (ridges remain). Then iron two sheets together using Wonder Under.  Then you can punch the flower parts directly from the paper without needing a sheet of regular paper to stabilize the crepe paper.  After the flower is assembled, you can then use thinned acrylic paint to add details. Also, Japanese crepe paper is used for flower making.  This crepe paper is thicker and more finely grained than the paper that is in rolls and used for decorations (see supplies section).
  • To use tiny containers as flower holders, drip some melted candle wax in about halfway, then insert the stems as it starts to harden. This technique can be used for outdoor planters and if the wax needs covering, use some dried apple seeds scattered on top -- looks just like wood chips. 
  • Wire and enamel can be combined in a cloisonne effect -from About.com  Also, look at the video below.

Oooohh! Don't you love flowers? I've just started trying my hand at carnations, mums, Gerbera daisies, and a flower trellis. Now our club is making potted bamboo. It's amazing how one little spider plant or a vase of flowers just completes a scene.

Wonderful source page for flowers.
