Curving Calla Lilies

Curving calla lilies stems

Let the Calla lilies rest out of water for about 30 minutes to slightly dehydrate. Gently message the stem to curve

Gently curve the calla stems

I like to follow the flower's natural curve but you can also curve only sections to create an elegant crescent or a curve at the tip of the stem. Place the stem back into water and condition as normal. The stem will become firm but the curve will remain.

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
