Hi I want to start working on a new art installation, but I need thousands apon thousands of silk or plastic flowers. I mean I need friggin boatloads of them! They can be any color quality age etc... I am not looking for crazy high quality ones although those would work just fine too! I want to build these giant structures which would be covered in masses of silk flowers. I would use the different colors of the flowers to create patterns and color variations. After they are built I want to dip them in layers of resin to create thick coatings and drips on the surface so they are almost similar to branches when they are caught in an ice storm. Anyway I am trying to figure out how to get them cheap or have people donate them to me since I never make money off of my installation work and really cant afford to buy a ton of them since they would be crazy expensive. Anyway I figured I would post on here and see if the great craftsterland wants to help be my think tank! Any suggestions? Cmon, I know you guys are super smart!
