Search on "floral", not flower and you'll find a lot of info.

I'm not very floral here so no tutorial to offer. I've tinkered with a few sculptural flowers. Mostly just experiment with melted areas and use tweezers or pliers to twist petals. I probably didn't say that well. I don't have great examples to show but I've done it two or three ways.

One I make a disc and cut it into petals and bend them towards the center.
I've also done a button type construction the same way. And I've done large globs or dots. I'll have to see what I have here to take pictures of.

I'm posting because for me a real tutorial is more helpful if I've tried something on my own. Then I better remember what not to do. You might be the opposite. If so search for your tutorial. There are a bunch around the net.

Good luck.
