Finally I managed to find some sparetime for making the next part of the tutorial as promised.
At first I painted a white cotton thread with green acryl paint and let it dry. This is for stalks glued on most of the leaves.
I used the punch above for leaves. I think its called "Ash leave puncher". I used a dark green paper, same weight as photo copypaper. Since the color was a bit boring I painted with a diluted green acrylic paint. If you use white paper, you´ll have to paint each leave seperately to avoid white edges. That´s why I chose a green paper, then I can paint the hole sheet before punching.
And now for shaping the leaves. A very important part of how the finished plant will turn out. I use the back side of my scalpel knife to "draw" a line along with the leave. I cut some leaves og and made different looking leaves. Remember also to turn half of the leaves around to get variation.
After shaping with the scalpel I use my fingers to pinch the leaves in a more natural shape. Here you can see some glued onto the painted thread and some I just glued to the brown base stalk without thread stalk. On the first picture you can see how I glue the leaves on the base stalk. Sorry it´s a bit dark, but I didn´t have a picture taking in daylight. When the leaves has dried glue the flowers on. Be careful to cover the stalk ends where they are glued to the base stalk.
I´ll take some pictures tomorrow in daylight and show you the finished clematis. For now this forst attempt on making clematis has all open flowers. I would like to make some half open and closed flowers to add. Just have to think of how to do... Any adwise?
