m seal flowers/ m-seal work/ mseal flower making tutorial part 1








Materials Required : m-seal , fevicol, talcum powder, any cylindrical bottle or rolling pin, craft knife, paper, Item on which flowers are to be pasted.

Method:

1)Mix the two halves of m-seal properly till it is a uniform whitish gray.

2)Place a piece of paper on your table and dust it with talcum powder.

3)Put the m-seal dough on your paper and roll it out like a roti. It should be 2 mm thick

4) Draw a template of petals of the flower you wish to make on a piece of paper.

5)Place that template on your rolled out mseal. Dab it with your fingers so that it sticks a little to the surface of the mseal.

6)With a knife cut out the petal, sliding the knife along the edges of the template, while holding the template steady with the fingers of your other hand.

7)Cut out all your petals. See the video on how to cut flower petals. I am using one hand because I had to hold the camera with the other one.

8)With the back end of your knife make veins on your petal if required.(Some flower petals have veins). It depends on your flower. I am making an Azalea which has veined petals.

9)Paste petals one by one on the item you with the flower to be .

10)M-seal typically takes 20 min to dry thoroughly . Shape your petals after 7/8 minutes of cutting or else they will lose their shape.

11)To shape the flower properly, keep shaping the petals a few times while drying because again they may lose shape while drying.
