The Yellow Water-lily


Is much more simple to form. It consists of only five petals; these are

cut in double yellow wax; colour them rather lightly with green upon

both sides, from the centre towards the base of each. Curl the petals

with the head of the large pin until they become deeply cupped. The

centre is much smaller than that of the white lily--not exceeding in

diameter the third of an inch. The stamina are produced by cutting three

or four narrow strips of double yellow wax, and passing them round the

foundation; they must not extend above it, but when brushed out form a

full daisy-like centre. The five petals are attached to the back of

these, and the stem finished off as the last.
