Step 1 / 11
Get the pewter, cutting mat and a 2 and 3mm dia punch with hammer ready
Step 2 / 11
Use the smallest embossing tool and press it into the centre of the disk.
Step 3 / 11
Turn the disk over.
With a slightly bigger embossing tool, pull "petals"outwards from the centre.
Step 4 / 11
Cut several bits of copper or brass wires.
I like to keep them quite long at this stage, as it makes it easier to handle.
Turn the disk over again and use a dab of superglue to glue the stem into the flower.
Step 5 / 11
I place the completed flowers into a strip of modelling clay on a piece of board for easier airbrushing.
Step 6 / 11
With a 5mm dia punch, punch out some more disks for leaves.
These disks will be used to make 3 or 4 leaves each.
Step 7 / 11
Take a 3mm and 4mm punch and punch along the outside rim of the 5mm disk. This will provide 3 to 4 leaves per disk.
Emboss the back of each leaf with a large embossing tool to make the leaf curl.
Step 8 / 11
To facilitate easier airbrushing, I glue the foam onto a rod, and then glue the leaves onto the foam.
Step 9 / 11
Airbrush the stems and leaves in a range of green colours.
Step 10 / 11
Airbrush the flowers and hand paint in the central stamen area.
Step 11 / 11
Glue them onto your diorama.
