Zinnia in a pot

with Jeannie Lindquist


Friday November 3rd 9aam - 12:30 pm

The potted zinnia you make in 1:12 scale can be "bought from Jeannie's Jems Nursery" in many colors: magenta, orange, pink, purple, red, white and yellow. You decide which color you prefer. All flower and leaf pieces are highly detailed using authentic, realistic colors and shadings. All flower pieces are expertly designed to be botanically correct and to give the greatest detail and then laser cut. No scissors are used for this step. Students will learn shaping and special tips in assembling the zinnia to truly look like a small version of the real, full-sized flowering plant. All skill levels are welcome. All Supplies for making the zinnia, pot with dirt and plastic display case are included in class fee.
