This summer saw a lot of fun commissions for weddings and parties and these were certainly two of the best. Lynne was a superb mother of the bride and came in with the brief of “a flamingo in flight”.
I blocked the straw base which was then dyed and sprayed to an antique gold. The feathers were dyed & curled to emulate the flamingo and then each individual one was carefully stitched on. Rose gold diamontes to finish.
