'Tea Clipper' David Austin Paper Rose

Garden roses are the ultimate luxury with their oodles of soft petals and intoxicating forms. In this course I will teach you how to create a garden rose with over 150 petals, and beautiful foliage. This course uses white and green doublette and watercolors for a wet-sculpting technique that is sure to give you a new way of thinking about botanical paper sculpture.

This course, and the supply list, are to make one rose with foliage at a time.
