I had to play with paper and paint again yesterday.
Such fun to make a new fern, please note a different variety.
Once again it is an
" Erika Gross Design "
Wish I knew what it is called, completely escapes me for the moment.
I will have to Google it.
We all know that it is only by doing that we learn what works and
simply what does not.
Not having the colour paint I needed, I mixed my own
for me it is slightly too dark.
In my personal experience green is certainly the colour that changes
completely in night light.
Also when you think you have a wire that will work and heck no...
it is a tad sub standard in the metal content used during manufacture.
I found that I could not control the wire as I would have liked.
The fronds swing around as though the wind is blowing.
Also I could not straighten out the curves, little kinks were left in the wires memory which would not budge without me stripping off all the leaves.
Will have to find the supplier of the wire that I first used.
I love these learning curves.
South Africa is not the perfect place to find "THE STUFF" one needs in an instant.
Thank goodness we have the internet these days.
Slowly the atrium is getting stocked with plants, Gran will then be able to sit down and read a book
and pretend she is on a tropical island somewhere.
PS A Big welcome to my new followers
I find it such a complement that you enjoy what I have been doing in my studio.
Thank you to all the girls who made comments on the last fern
gives a person such a boost...
At the moment I am all knitted out.
Sooooo playing with the ferns and flowers is all good !!!
