US Vendors

Papers: Carte Fini, Paper Flower Supplies

Wires: World of Sugar Art has been recommended as an online source, I ordered mine direct from China

Glue: Walmart is where I purchased my clear glue and glue gun and you can also get Modge Podge Matte

Scissors: Chikamasa can be searched for online and look for the best price - wire cutters are found at Paper Flower Supplies

91% Rubbing Alcohol: I find this in the pharmacy section of stores in the US; as a substitute vodka can be used.

Coloration: Pan Pastels and Ranger Inks in Wild Plum , a green marker (I use Copic brand, moss or grass green would be good color substitutes)

(the inks can also be sourced from Paper Flower Supplies and other vendors)

Conservation: Walmart has the UV spray I use; a good substitute is sold from Paper Flower Supplies. Think sunscreen for your flowers. The Modge Podge spray can be found there also.
