Roses
« on: January 09, 2021, 11:25:05 AM »
We were discussing Roses the other day and I mentioned I don't really have a go to Rose that I use.
So there was the next day and a half making Roses, ended up with over 15 variations on a theme.
Some had potential and some went straight to the bin  ;D

As I made so many I'm not sure in what order they were made to get to the final design.

As I said as I made so many I'm not sure in what order the Rose developed and evolved.

These Roses are made from 160's, the stem looks a little too big for the actual Rose though.....
or perhaps its just me thinking this?

Had an idea, perhaps I just need to make the leaves a little smaller.... ;D

So we come to the favourite Roses I made from my two days of playing with latex.
I ended up with three Roses that I liked from 260 balloons, one with 7 petals for
the real world and then a 12 petal and the 17 petal Rose.

From 160 it was just a 3 petal wrap over that I went with, will post all my favourites.

The Red is a 7 petal and the Purple is 17 petals

I then played with different dimensions for the underside of the Rose to see what was pleasing to my eye.

Last picture from how the Rose evolved..........................for the moment.
I'm rather into the different looks for the Rose at the moment and will definitely be making some more soon.
