My plan to have Kusudama completed for our next class (end of April) seems to be going well. The extra silks have arrived so I should have enough now to complete everything.
Finished the 3D effect and the silver bamboo leaves.
Put stamens and pollen into the silver plum and have cracked the small gold bamboo leaves. They won't take long to complete.
Stamens and pollen on the gold plum are complete. Have to put some outlines on the silver bell flower but I can't decide what colour to use, so I'm leaving it for a while.
A start has been made on most all of the cords and strings.
The background ball is almost finished, just the small gold bamboo and the outline on the silver bell flower.
