The Roman technique of paper flowers

Flower paper power

Learn quickly and easily how to reproduce Mediterranean flora and decorative vegetable flowers with simple crepe paper. The crepe paper is very sustainable, allowing you to carry pieces of our flora with you and decorate display cases and doors in your home. After a brief historical review of the nineteenth-century custom of decorating doors, small vases and bell-shaped glasses, we will study the geometric physionomy of authentic roman flowers or antique prints. We will focus on making reproductions of an unexpected flower such as the artichoke plant flowers or other unusual floral species using acrylics, watercolors, or simple sunlight to give it a more natural allure, playing with the paper’s photosensitivity. DIY with a little guidance, but mostly without previous experiences !
