What are Sola Wood Flowers?
Sola wood flowers are made from a plant called Aeschynomene aspera, similar to the feel of balsa wood.
Every single Sola flower is created by hand and no machines are used.
Flowers are then dipped in dye or paint to give them color. Hand painting and airbrushing are also methods used.
I purchase the flowers already formed. Making the actual flowers is not a craft I am ready to take on!
Some of the flowers I buy are already pre-dyed to save a step in the process. But I also purchase raw flowers that I dye and paint myself.
