Vintage GLAM
by Susan Weisser


1. white lotus bowl
2. 1 monstera leaf
3. 1/2 block lime green Oasis foam
4. 3 green cymbidium
5. #726 Flat White Design Master
6. #790 Olive Bright Design Master
7. cardboard disc
8. Oasis floral adhesive
9. green chenille stem


1. Spray large leaf completely with Flat White Design Master. For lacquered-look, you will need 3 coats. It's better to do several light coats on a fresh leaf.
2. Next, place foam in bowl and cut flush to top of bowl.
3. Take cardboard disc and paint both sides with Olive Bright Design Master.
4. Punch 2 holes in center of disc.
5. Take chenille and bend in half. Thread chenille through the 2 holes.
6. Construct composite flower using petals of 2 orchids --- place orchid "throats" to the side.
7. Place remaining orchid in center of composite petals and adhere with Oasis Floral Adhesive.
8. Then attach extra "throats" to center of flower.
9. "Landscape" the monstera leaf by laying it across the top of the wet foam.
10. Place the composite cymbidium onto the leaf and pierce the leaf with ends
of the chenille stem to insert into foam.
