Your tutorials are so awesome and they are easy to follow! I do have a question though; after making some kanzashi out of 2x2 inch squares I'm ready to try something smaller. If I did a 1x1 inch square would I then make my base half an inch in diameter? Is there a ratio in relation to petal size or a chart or anything? If not then I can just experiment, but after following your tutorial I was finally able to make one that actually looked like a flower. All the attempts I made based on my own judgement just sucked, lol! So I'd rather trust your instincts then mine. Thanks!! :D

?This says part 3, where can I find part one and two. I've looked at the steps you've listed in the description and they're wonderfully detailed. But what is mayfair?

There are links to all the other parts of this tutorial in the artist's comments section. Mayfair is simply a type of thick paper.

i was just wondering, where do you get the hair pin/stick/fork? do you buy them from somewhere or do you actually make them yourself? and also, if you do make them, what kind of wire or metal do you use?
Kurokami-Kanzashi's avatar

Sometimes, I make them myself, in which case I use whatever strong yet plyable wire I can find. Mostly I buy the pins though. Zipangu Treasures is a great place to get them [link]

I use buttons for the backs of mine, usually...I hate stabbing the paper! XD;

Do you use those metal forks for your kanzashi? What do you make them of?
Kurokami-Kanzashi's avatar
Kurokami-KanzashiProfessional Artisan Crafter
Oh buttons! That's a really good idea! I'll have to ask my friend to buy me some button making pieces. How do you attach the wires to the back, though?
hanatsukuri's avatar
I bend them over. :) With plyers, (or my fingers, if it's light wire). Then I use really strong cement-glue and let it cure overnight.
