Use Of Curling Pins And Scissors








I beg to remind my readers that these are the only instruments I deem
requisite for modelling wax flowers. Both these require to be moistened
before they are applied to the wax. Warmth as well as moisture is
essential for these. A glass of lukewarm water will answer the purpose;
but great care must be taken to shake off the surplus water; for if the
globules were to fall upon the petal, it would occasion the colour to
run.


THE METHOD OF APPLYING BRUSHES

requires to be stated; for they must not be held as a pen or pencil, but
perfectly perpendicular. Commence a short distance from the lower end of
the petals--for where the paint is applied the wax will not adhere. When
the petal is all one colour, pass the brush from you quickly and lightly
off the same on to the paper. If it is a variegated petal, bring the
brush towards you. This will enable you to soften off the edges of the
spots which are to be left free from colour. When moisture is required
in the brush, the latter must not be plunged into water, but a small
drop taken up by the handle on to the paper.
