How to create a Hummingbird on the Pressed Plant Art.

Updated: Jan 7

In this article, I’ll show how to create the Pressed Plant Art with a Hummingbird. You will see photos of botanical materials and the sketch for the Pressed Plant Art.


Pressed Plant Art "Hummingbird"

The background for the Pressed Plant Art is made of petals of Pansies purple color.

Sketch of the Hummingbird for Pressed Plant Art

Dried under press botanical materials: petals of flowers of Pansy, helichrysum, clover; leaves of Ornamental Cabbage, wiping willow, azalea, peony; flowers of Larkspur with stems.

One of the Hummingbird’s wings is made of a leaf of pear, another one is made of butterfly’s wing. I’m placing and looking at prepared by me plants on the figure of Hummingbirds on the piece of paper.

I started to glue pressed plants on the figure of Hummingbird from bottom to top. I used pieces of wildflower white color and pieces of leaves of Ornamental Cabbage.

Step by step I'm filling up the figure of the Hummingbird. I added pieces of clover.

For red color throat, I added petals of Helichrysum.

The only place for the wings is left in the figure of Hummingbird. I added petal of Pansy dark blue color for the beak, parts of leaves of Peony and Whipping Willow for the head, parts of Pear leaf for the legs.

To create my Pressed Plant Art with image of the Hummingbird I was inspired by real Hummingbirds.
