Light Kiss. Sakura Kanzashi. by hanatsukuri Light Kiss. Sakura Kanzashi. by hanatsukuri
Gentle pink, light kiss. :heart:

:D this one is promised to a friend. :heart: I shall probably make another for Sakura-Month (April...)

The dye job on this...took a while...individually pinching 60 petals also took a while. *Dies* what an elaborate piece...!

So, yes, yet another of my tsumami * kanzashi (pinched * ornate hair pin). Kanzashi are made (much like origami), where each petal was a square--and then was folded into a petal shape. Then you arrange it, etc, etc. :D it takes a very long time...

Thoughts?

Here's the sister pieces: [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]

Ohh wow, these start from squares? Then I need to try making one! I like doing origami, and your pieces are beautiful. :D

Yes, they do start from squares! The technique is called 摘みかんざし (tsumami kanzashi,) but it's called just "kanzashi" in English/on the web.  There's lots of tutorials if you look! :) It's great fun.

So, how do you dye the fabric? Is it possible to tone it after the folding?

I'm sure there are many ways you can dye kanzashi. :) I don't make tutorials, sorry! There is a kanzashi community you could try asking around on, though? There's also [link] who may or may not be taking suggestions for tutorial topics for sale. She's made some in the past, though, so she's a good person to ask. :iconarleen: on deviant art. She's nice! :)

Yeah. I can find them for the regular petals, but I can't find or figure out the cherry blossom petals.
