Please excuse poor cell phone photo shot. Will be taking some better pics when the weather permits:
Well, here is the first leather rose/flower I have ever made. No patterns, had to figure it out on my own. Made as a gift to a long time friend and co worker who loves purple
I'd like to work out a pattern where I can make a tighter bud with more layers. For this one I went with a more open bloom. I handshaped all the petals while they were drying, but some of the shape was lost when I sealed it. Had to go back over and reshape what I could. (Darn my spray sealer running out!)
Eco flo dyes, amd Super Shine. Also dusted lightly with crushed pearl powder in gold before sealing. The back features a woodin pin (pre purchased) to secure the hair.
