The first photo shows the finished flowers either side of the crowned skull.
In this picture are all the elements I used to make the flowers; gold, white and sliver coloured foils (cut into many-petalled shapes), white or black gauze, small white plastic flower shapes* and glass beads. Some of the paint stenciling is on the left.
I found these in a bead shop in Toulouse, called “fifi jolipois”, 11 Rue Cujas. They sell a wonderful array of habedashery plus beads. I am happy to have found it.
