Foamarin flowers


A very early start for me this morning as we are at he hospital shop with my card and gifts. We like to set up the night before but now that the powerboat racing season has started we have to set up this morning as hubby was volunteering driving a rescue boat last night. I hope my back holds out as it is still rather painful.

So I wanted to share my first foamarin flowers with you. There are some incredible flowers around made with this but I am quite pleased with my first attempts. I watched a demo at Ally Pally and bought some foamarin and stamens and had a go. Here is the lilac one in the middle on this box.


And here is the white one which actually has lilac edges I coloured with ink but they don't seem to be showing in this picture very well.


So these boxes will be on sale today. I will be experimenting with the faomarin some more. If you haven't seen it then it is a very thin foam which stretches especially after heating, There are some great videos on you tube and some wonderful examples in blogland and on Facebook.

Beautifully decorated boxes Marianne. I haven't seen or heard of faomarin, but after seeing your flowers I'm intrigued, they are gorgeous. Hope your back doesn't feel too bad at the end of the day and you have had a successful one.

Fabulous boxes Marianne! Your flowers have turned out beautifully, I can't believe this was your first attempt at making them. I've got some Foamarin but have yet to have a go with it but when I do I hope they turn out half as good as yours. Debra x
