Ideal for Intermediate students (or students with previous experience making paper flowers).
In this course, you will learn how I make realistic-looking foxgloves (Digitalis purpurea) at your own time and pace. I first teach you the basics of how I make my ‘Dalmatian White’ from template to assembly. Then, I’ll show you how I make 2 other variations using this general formula, the ‘Camelot Rose’ foxglove and the ‘Apricot Beauty’ foxglove.
You’ll learn and perfect the following skills and techniques:
I’ve taught this flower at a workshop, thus I’ve been able to perfect the formula so that every student, beginners or intermediate or advanced, will end up with stunning results within a few hours. If you wish to add more details to the flower after you’ve learned it from me - sure, feel free to do so! Variations create interest in arrangements and your paper garden.
The first foxglove I made was for one of my earliest bouquets. I had originally sought to use it to elongate the shape of the bouquet. But it refused to be just a structural piece. It became the star of that bouquet. I promise you that with a little patience and an afternoon free of distractions you’ll make a foxglove worthy of your paper arrangements and garden.
