This beautiful array of yellow flowers with stem intact concludes my resin flower experiments for now. I could only find one fallen flower like this, and though the resin didn’t cure properly, it somehow makes it unique. These are the flowers i tread on the way home. They are all over the park path and there is no avoiding them. Its kind of surreal when you pass a yellow flower strewn path while exiting the park.
Two petals and a star. Found these pale orange peach petals with an open fuschia pink flower. You can see all the gaps and bubbles of my first time resin process but i kind of love it like that. I love the veins in the petals
Let me take you on a small, and strange and magical nature tour of my life this morning. I live in Singapore, its a small island in Southeast Asia. Its a tropical island so we have sun and rain 365 days a year. I am super blessed to have a park behind my house. I went on a walk this morning after breakfast. I managed to collect some fallen flowers from growing varieties in the park. I say fallen and i’m serious. I did not pick any growing flowers. Wouldn’t want to hurt the flowers. As i proceeded to retrieve the fallen flowers from the ground, i had to be very polite to the big red ants who were doing their collecting as well. I say its an achievement to not having been bitten. Humano-animalno co-operation to the max. The ants were also on the park railings so i had to do my stretching exercises elsewhere. What you see here are a variety of flower petals i found. All with very vibrant colours. Some random shots of flower specimens i found interesting as well. I proceeded to make some resin pendants full of bubbles and quirks cured imperfectly which i will show you soon. I am needing the help of my Saipeh when she is free.
My friend is being my Saipeh for this project. She explained to me that Saipeh is Teochew Chinese dialect for Master. She is teaching me how to work with resin. I think these are some of my favourite jewellery pieces of the year. Brown leaves moving as if in the wind, blood tears trying to reach each other. As if a drop of blood is frozen in time, on resin.
