JFTV: Fresh How-To Transforming Ava/Ines Preserved Roses

In this episode of #JFTV, we transformed ivory Ines-sized Preserved Roses from Vermeille using only a hot glue gun and a thin utensil to separate the petals.

How-To Step by Step

Using a single rose head and a simple base, such as this poker chip, we’re going to increase the size of this preserved rose. Get your hot glue gun ready!

Step 1

Remove the stamen. You do this by holding the rose firmly with one hand, having a secure grip on the petals as a whole; while the other hand is firmly holding the stem from the base of the rose, gently pulling them apart.

Step 2

Hot glue preserved rose to a new base or support. (You won’t be able to detach the rose again).

Maintain a firm yet gentle hold on the rose petals now that nothing is holding them together, and hot glue the base of the rose onto another surface to transform.

Apply enough hot glue that will support the base of the rose and not let the petals fall apart.

Step 3

Spread the rose petals to increase the aperture or size of the bloom. Take advantage of the wet hot glue and begin opening your rose before it fully dries.

Using a small, clean utensil, carefully separate the petals, spreading them apart to look more bloomed. Continue separating he petals in a spiraled order until desired shape and aperture is reached. Allow hot glue to dry.
