Likely the most commonly used thread when creating Ganutell is DMC floss. There are different types of DMC floss, though, and this flower is made using the satin finish. This finish comes in several colors, and is slightly heavier than the regular floss. This flower has three basic petals in the center, and the inside layer is made using square petals with two rows of copper colored wire on the outer edges. The lower layer is also square petals, but I’ve set ganutell wire on the outside of each petal, also in a copper color.
The other flower is made using kite petals, and the little bud is made of square petals. Both are outlined with copper wire, and all the flowers have lots of coppery beads for stamens and decoration. The upper flower also has a large crystal in the center!
The arrangement includes some of the paper leaves I’ve been experimenting with. I’ve yet to mount it, and will post a photo when I have finished the project.
I’d like to invite everyone to visit my Facebook page and post the Ganutell flowers you’re working on … I’d love to see them!
