Kimono Fabric Flower. Small Lotus Comb. by hanatsukuri
Kimono Fabric Flower. Small Lotus Comb.
:heart: kimono fabric is really expressive. Personally, I see it as bold oil-painting, where hand-dyed is more like watercolor... so kimono fabric tends to inspire bold patches of pattern among really defined folds.
Anyway, I'm still working through my kimono fabric samplers. It's my goal this year to use as much as I can before I have to move internationally (again). :heart:

So, this art is called tsumami zaiku, or tsumami kanzashi. It uses single squares of fabric folded individually into a petal shape, and the only limit to what you can make is your imaginiation... and a nice armature. If you're interested in learning how to do it, please consider looking at our KickStarter~!

Pale Pink Sakura Tsumami Zaiku. Kiss kanzashi. by hanatsukuri
Pale Pink Sakura Tsumami Zaiku. Kiss kanzashi.
It has been a while since I made a "kiss" design, but here it is. So many delicate cherry blossoms feature in this 下がりつまみ細工、しだれ桜。 It is a weeping cherry-blossom, so the flowers continue down into the design.

I hand-dyed these from little white squares of silk, but chose a very light, delicate touch-- imitating the delicate pink of spring. All together, they're like pink clouds, but one-by-one they are small and pale. That's the nice thing about hand-dying-- it's so much like water-color, each incarnation of the design differs.

Thoughts?

Snowflake and Dreams. Silk Organza Tsumami Zaiku. by hanatsukuri
Snowflake and Dreams. Silk Organza Tsumami Zaiku.
 I made the snowflakes out of silk organza. These are small squares of silk that I fold into a variety of shapes, and arrange together into a whimsical shape. :snowflake: it's just the thing for a unique look. :nod:

So, you've seen a few of my other snowflake designs-- Winter Wonder. chiffon snowflake tsumami kanzashi by hanatsukuri  Star white Kanzashi. Silk Organza Tsumami Zaiku. by hanatsukuri, and these are the ones I came up with while I was designing for a custom order. So, it's kind of an interesting example of a simple request for snowflakes can spurn a whole lot of different ideas...:giggle:   

Also: Tsumami Zaiku: An Artisan's Guide to Kanzashi by hanatsukuri ! We are starting a kickstarter to publish a book on this craft. Please click the deviation for more detail :sheepish:

Tsumami Zaiku: An Artisan's Guide to Kanzashi by hanatsukuri

We have launched the kickstarter! This is a joint effort by nine talented artists who are working together to publish a (print!) book to teach interested people about how to make tsumami kanzashi.

What we're really hoping for is not large donations-- we don't expect you to pay a lot. As little as $1 can really spread the word and help us reach a wider audience! Please do consider backing us.

Our book's homepage:www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…
The short url for the kickstarter: kck.st/1P5sqlu

The deviantART group is: :icontzartisans: (icon TBA...)

It's a lengthy print-book that discusses:
1) various petal types
2) has interesting tips: practical advice, adaptable ways to wear your craft (tsumami zaiku)
3) Projects! (Eg designs from the contributors)

This will be the first English-language kanzashi book that doesn't utilize sewing techniques, just the traditional kanzashi glue-and-pinch-and-starch methods. It's coming from an international group of artists, too, which we think is useful. We include tools,tips, and all that good stuff.

...also as kickstarter does, there are many rewards for donating. Have a look and see if there's something you're interested in! We've got a tall order (publishing a book is not cheap), and hope to get enough interest to print and deliver our hard work.


I hope to see you at Kickstarter!

Also, feel free to join the TZArtisans community here on deviantART. Anyone can contribute kanzashi to the folders, and enjoy the international community who make flowers. :D
