Amazing, thanks so much Corporea! I like that you put in a few different things to try, I have a feeling I'll have a lot of roses before I get one I like :p


I think the toughest part will be getting one small enough to look good on a Stephanie Law DSM mini, they're so graceful and delicate-looking.

I'd probably do it in 2 parts- sculpt the flower, attach to the miniature.  Then take thin wire for the stem and attach to the other side- depending on the miniature you can drill to fit the wire in.  You could then coat the wire with either paint or greenstuff.  If you want it to look like a rose stem you'd need thorns, so the greenstuff would accomplish that.  You might be able to roll a very thin strip of greenstuff out for the stem and pluck at it with something like a dental tool or hook to pull out thorns.  This is hard.


The vines I used in this miniature were much thicker, so I was able to pull the thorns, but I'd be afraid in a thin unanchored strip it might be hard to accomplish.  Probably easier to just use a bit of wire and fake the thorns with some clever paint! (much like a freehand on a shield to mimic an embossed pattern)
