Default Ribbon Sculpture Question

I love how the sculptures look, so I am considering buying some instructions. But first I need to know how time consuming they are. I realize that each is different, but can anyone give me an estimate or maybe a comparison between let's say a princess sculpture and a large korker?

A princess ribbon scupture takes me about 30 mins... depending if I have any distractions. As far as time comparisons(sp?) to korkers i haven't made those yet. So I'm not sure. HTH.

I also can't compare to a korker, but depending on the sculpture, I'd guess it averages about 30min. I've never timed myself because I do mine in stages. At one sitting I cut and seal all the ribbon. Next I prepare all the pieces. Next I assemble them. Then I attach to clip. Seems I can never sit down and do one from start to finish without distractions LOL!!!

It would maybe take a bit longer the first time you make one, but each time it would be quicker. You can also make several at a time if you do an assembly line.

If you have any questions about any of my instructions, I'd be happy to answer them for you.

Thanks ladies! That does give me some idea. The next time I get caught up on orders, I guess that I'll have to buy some instructions. I will definitely check out your instructions, Wendy. I really liked your firecracker ones.

speaking of the ribbon sculptures, sorry op, off topic! Where do you find your peach/cream aka skin color? I was at ACMoore and all I could find the least bit close, was antique white(cream). . .I didn't get it. Does Micheal's have a bigger selection? I didn't look for it last time I was there! Thanks!

I got some Ivory ribbon from UB. I could trade you some if you'd like.

thanks for the offer! Is the ivory basically a cream color? If so I guess the one I saw at acmoore will work. I just wasn't sure if it would be too 'white', lol. I haven't done any 'people' scultures and couldn't remember if you guys actually used a peachy color or not. . .

It took me a half hour to make 2 princesses the other day. It gets faster with practice. It took me 2 hrs to make 1 when I first started.
I use Lt. Ivory for the skin color.
