Scarlet Geranium


The petals are cut from thick white wax. Colour them upon both sides

with bright scarlet (scarlet and crimson both in powders), form a very

small foundation of white wax to the end of a fine wire. Cut five fine

and short stamina, place them on the foundation, and colour them red.

Affix the five petals round, the two largest placed uppermost, the three

smaller ones under. Attach calyx as in the former flower. Cover the stem

neatly with light green wax, and mount the flowers in clusters. Make

some buds moulded in light green wax, others in white wax, painted

scarlet at the points; and the calyx placed round as in the flower.
