I am trying to get a velvet look that a natural roses has, and luster dust and airbrushing does not work, anyone know how to get this natural finish look?
After dusting them, are you steaming them?
Hi, i found this also. hth
no I dont steam them....also do you dust as your making the petals or when its assempbled? Also when they say non toxic chalk are they talking about chalk for chalkboards?
you should very lightly steam your roses, then re-dust , making the cnetre darker and the edges lighter. It makes them look more velvety.
Can't help with the chalk, sorry - I only use petal dusts
the chalks people talk about is in the art section at michales, etc. it is pastels. that is what is says on the box. when i teach flowers , we use them, I have dusting powders of all kinds also. Scott Clark Wooley uses them in his teachings and dvds. That is how i know about them. They do really good. I grind them in a electric grinder. I use it only for that. Then i put the dust in little bottles with plastic lids , that i get from michaels. hthI sent you 2 other how tos in my previous post. Great read!!!
thanks icer, I did steam them and they look a little simmery.....not as much as when I airbrushed...I think I will get the chalk and try it
ok then, one more way for Nanna to hurt herself haha steam burns are the worst
