Printed in 1992, the techniques demonstrated are still relevant today, though some of the materials are trickier to find now. Most of the flowers are shaped using heated flower tools, which can be difficult to source and are rather expensive. Many of the flowers are coloured by handpainting with dyes to replicate natural colouring. This book would be most useful to a dedicated maker of silk flowers rather than someone who just wants to give it a go. There are some useful suggestions for making your own stamens/pistiles when you can't purchase suitable ones for a flower, eg lilies. Contains clear, step by step instructions for 22 flowers and utilises black and white sketches for each step with a colour photo of the finished flower.
