Dry flowers composition: Execution and care


The first phase to create floral compositions is the preparation of the container that forms the basis of the composition with the synthetic sponge, starting by shaping the sponge, pressing it against the edge of the container, proceeding to cut along the edge, starting to put the flowers the stems of the blue dolphin are cut off leaving a longer one to put in the center intended to define the height of the composition to enhance the effect, make about fourteen bunches of spikes of up to three or four stems that must be inserted between the blue dolphin and while others at sloping heights must be placed around the edge of the vase so as to form a crown of stems, this time we insert the statice, which must be placed shorter than the delphinium and the grain.
The pink statice is an element of prominent color in the composition as a whole, so be careful to distribute it evenly and abundantly and then, once the poppies are placed with the dried capsules, the poppies must be cut in lengths. different and must be placed in a regular manner always respecting the circular shape, to enhance the chromatic effect.
Even the pink Helipterum flowers are tied in bunches of three or four stems and distributed throughout the composition, taking care to fill the gaps and hide the sponge, the Helipterum flower is extremely delicate if it breaks it is rebuilt with the wire .
Finally the lemon is inserted also for this flower it is advisable to make small bunches.
Once the insertion of all the elements chosen for the composition is completed, the vase is observed from all sides to check if the flowers are harmoniously arranged and the composition is not excessively bulky and protruding, where necessary the flowers are repositioned if necessary until you are satisfied with the distribution and the color effect achieved.
Once the composition has been completed, it is only necessary to take care of it, avoiding exposing it to damp environments or sources of direct heat and light that would fade the color, and finally to make sure that the dust does not veil the dried flowers, the effect would be really sad a solution to eliminate it remains to blow it away from time to time with a hair dryer.
