July 2, 2022: Coral Charm Peony In-Person Workshop with Pink and Posey

 

What is Coral Charm Peony?

It is a semi-double peony, a herbaceous plant that only blooms from mid-spring to early summer. The large flower is cup shaped and will bloom to be about 6-7” in diameter. When it first blooms, it is a deep persimmon color. As time goes on, it will change to a pink coral color, and then a cream color right before the petals fall off.

What you will learn in this Coral Charm Peony course:

How to color and dye your crepe paper.

How to construct a structural peony by wiring your petals, creating a look that is stately yet soft at the same time. I will teach you how to mieter in two different ways.

How to laminate your crepe paper to create lush and thick stamens.

Understand what a Coral Charm Peony is and be able to identify carpel, stamen, stigma, anther, filament, guard petals, sepals, leaves and stem.

How to change up your crepe paper to reflect the petal color change as the flower ages. (Did you know that a peony bloom lasts about 5 days, and within that time, it will change from a deep persimmon to coral to cream before its petals fall off?)

Using the same petal to create your petals, I will show you how to create your peony bract and leaves sets.

In celebration of my first in-person workshop in over two years, I am offering a special Kai Scissors Gifts set for only $39.99, regular price $50. 

It includes an 8", 5 1/2", and 4"

These are Pink and Posey's go to scissors:

The Workhorse: 8" Kai 5210

My everyday, go-to scissor is the 8” Kai 5210. These cut beautifully through 180g Italian crepe paper, and even German doublette. They tick off all of the boxes for me: made of stainless steel, a perfect length for general cutting, and a soft handle. 

The Fringe Maker: 5 1/2" Kai 5135 

For more precise work, I grab my 5 ½” Kai 5135. Perfect for fringe and any cuts that are close together. This is also what I use for most of my detail work on the edges of petals. Again, these are made of steel and have a shorter blade for that more exact work. 

The Tight Spot or Detail Cuts: 4" Kai 5100

Sometimes paper flowers require a really delicate cut. When I have to cut something in a small or hard to reach place, I use the 4” Kai 5100. The tip on these is extremely sharp and precise. This isn’t something you’ll use constantly, but when you need it, it’ll perform in a tight spot beautifully.
