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.
