There are a variety of immortal flower products on the market. From the eyes of ordinary people, their designs are similar, but they actually contain a lot of knowledge, from the choice of flower materials, color matching, placement, quantity, and flowering technology and technology. The choice of container, etc., every detail involves the personal knowledge, experience and aesthetic ability of the florist, and then determines whether the finished product is a pure product or a work of art.


Flower selection
Due to technical limitations, there are not many flowers that can be processed into immortal flowers, but there are enough options. Common immortal flowers include roses, lilies, carnations, hydrangeas, gypsophila, cherry blossoms, phalaenopsis, frangipani, calla, sun flower, gerbera, ping pong flower, blue star flower, tulip, jasmine, etc. Each kind of flower material has its own characteristics and meanings, and the same flower material has different brand choices. Proper selection of flower materials is one of the necessary conditions for creating an excellent work.

Take the classic magic rose in the movie "Beauty and the Beast" as an example. It is a glass cover with only one flower. This flower can be a rose, or Austin or a sun flower, but the independent Austin is not special. Beautiful, sun flowers can not create a romantic feeling, so roses will be more suitable than the latter two. But there are different varieties and brands of roses alone. Among them, the roses produced in Ecuador have the largest size, bright colors, many layers of petals, and thick, which is the most suitable flower material choice to highlight the beauty of flowers and create romantic magic roses.

Flower color
Compared with the choice of flower material, the color of the flower material is more important. It almost determines the fate of the work. Depending on the theme of the work, the color combinations can be mainly divided into the same color system, near-color system or contrast color system (contrast color). The same color system is matched with the same but different shades, such as Léselle's eternal rose (strawberry); the near-color system is matched with similar colors, such as Léselle's pink blue pink purple rose bouquet. Pink blue is used for matching; contrasting colors are more difficult to match. It uses two or more different colors to match to create a strong visual impact, such as Léselle's red mini rose.

The matching of flower color also includes embellishments and gradients. A work usually has a main flower and a lining flower. The function of the lining flower is to decorate the main flower, and if there is a certain amount of lining flower, it needs a little decoration. For example, hydrangeas often used as lining flowers. If there are too many hydrangeas, you need to add some other lining flowers such as tiny starry stars to enhance the overall layering. Gradient is the combination of three or more colors in a sequential manner, and Léselle's rainbow rose bouquet uses this effect.

Flower arrangement
The placement and angle of the flowers are also very particular. When designing a product, in addition to thinking about how it creates aesthetics, it also needs to consider its viewing angle. Take Léselle's eternal rose as an example. It belongs to a glass cover with three main flowers. If you place all three main flowers side by side, it will lose the sense of layering, and you will need to view it from the top. Often placed on a table, this effect is not ideal. On the contrary, the staggered layout of the main flower makes it look more three-dimensional; the angle of the flowers in the same direction also makes it more suitable for the user's real viewing angle and use method. After all, this kind of decoration is rarely rotated .

The placement of the main flower is important, as is the lining flower. The hydrangea, which is often used as a lining flower, has the function of shaping. Proper distribution can make the bouquet look more round and make the flowers in the glass cover appear fuller. In addition, in order to avoid the monotonous position of the lining, the hydrangea is usually mixed with several colors. At this time, the hydrangea of ​​different colors needs to be evenly distributed, otherwise it will be garnished there and lose the harmonious beauty. . As mentioned above, small starry stars are sometimes used to embellish full hydrangeas. This embellishment also requires the starry stars to be evenly distributed on the hydrangea.

Number of flowers
Immortal floral products usually include a variety of flower materials, and the proportion of various flower materials is also one of the factors to be considered in product design. Take the simplest rose bouquet as an example. Rose is the protagonist and hydrangea is the supporting role. If there are too many roses and too few hydrangeas, the hydrangea will lose its effect. If there are too few roses, too many hydrangeas will not stand out. rose. The proportion between roses and hydrangeas must be just right, just right, to reflect a harmonious beauty.

Flowering tips
Flowering is a unique technique for making eternal floral products containing roses. It cannot be separated from two uses: one is to make the flower larger and make it look more attractive; the other is to modify the shape of the flower and adjust the original bad shape of the rose. . Flowering seems simple, but there is a lot of knowledge behind it.

It is a common flowering technique to apply the hot melt between the petals, or put fillers such as cotton or paper scraps between the petals. There are also separate petals one by one, apply the hot melt and then stick them again. on. These methods have their own advantages and disadvantages. Taking thermosol coating as an example, due to its characteristics, it can relatively shape the flower shape and obtain the desired effect. However, in actual operation, sometimes a small strip may be pulled out when the thermosol gun is retracted. Long hot-melt filaments may also be accidentally applied to inappropriate locations when applying glue. There is no such trouble in using the filler, but it cannot accurately shape the flower shape of the rose. Moreover, the filler is too large or too small and needs to be remade and stuffed, and the production time is inevitably increased.

In the end, not all roses need to bloom, and it doesn't have to be bigger to make them look better. Blooming all roses, blindly pursuing larger roses will only make the work lose its beauty.
