1. Tool kit essentials introduction: everyone. Welcome to Flores Tree 101 class number two called Tool Kit Essentials. My name is Deaf Tracinski. And like I mentioned in my previous video, I have been a floral designer for 30 years. So the reason why I wanted to put this course together, this particular one on your tool kit is because I have found over my 30 years of floral design that there is a lot of product, a lot of tools that you actually can do without. A lot of products out there have a big ticket of attached to them. And I want to show you what it is that you absolutely need on day what you need to invest in versus items that you can simply simply pick up at a craft store or even a dollar store . So I've divided this course up into three sections. The very 1st 1 is where I'm gonna focus on the beginner level essential tool kit. So if this is a new career for you, this is where you want to focus. And then I've also compiled a list for the intermediate level as well as for the advanced. So without further ado, let's get started 2. Beginner supplies: Okay, So, first and foremost as floral designer, you need to make sure that you have really sharp tools that are efficient at cutting flowers. So I'm going to introduce you to the one thing that I highly recommend that you invest in, and that is a really great pair of cutters, floral shears. So these air cutters that you're going to use so that you can easily cut through the stems of soft and semi woodie flowers. So you need them to be very, very sharp. You don't want them to be big and clunky so that they can't do that finer job on some of the tiny flowers. You need to make sure that there's something that remains sharp so that when they cut through, you're not crushing the stem, but instead slicing it nicely. So these air, actually, my absolute preferred floral shares of all time there in Japanese style, all metal sheer, and you can see that there well used their very dirty, and, uh, I've been using them for years. I probably had this pair for about four or five years, and they're still razor sharp. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for when it comes to this sort of thing you can expect to pay, I would say anywhere between 80 and $150 for these. So when you do find the pair that you want to invest in, make sure that you keep them safe. Make sure that you don't accidentally sweep them up in a bunch of garbage with all of the flowers and stems all over the place. It's happened before, even put your name on them in case they do get left behind. If you're doing an on site installation, um, I would recommend in terms of the length of the blade, something that's maybe about the length of your point. Your finger, OK, and that is probably the biggest investment that you're going to make. Isn't these guys? So shop around, make sure you read reviews. Make sure that that they're worth the purchase. All right, so the floral shares my number. One thing that I never leave home without The second item, of course, is a knife. All floral designers use knives. There is a good reason for that. First of all, if you are working with something that's very fleshy and soft and perhaps even hollow inside, like we used the example of a ridiculous or Gerber daisy. You want to make sure that you give it a very nice clean cut through that super soft tissue tissue, and the best way to achieve that cut is with a knife, so you can see that there's all sorts of knives available out on the market. You can even use a kitchen paring knife. It will still work. The important thing is that you're comfortable with the type of night that you're using. The other important thing is that you make sure that you don't share your knife with others and don't use other people's knives because you are familiar with how sharp these items are and you want to make sure that you are aware of what they can and can't do. So I've got a couple of different knives to show you here, This one here, you'll notice, has a curved blade, and this one here has a straight blade. What is the difference? I really honestly don't feel like there's any difference in terms of the ability to cut one thing versus another. They both work equally. I will say, however, for the purpose of sharpening. I prefer a straight blade because it's a lot easier to sharpen a straight blade, especially in those special mechanisms where you could do it yourself. It's a lot easier to get a sharp blade using a straight knife that it is with something curved. So that's the difference between the two of those. As you get more and more familiar with the type of night that you prefer, as well as the thickness of the handle, then I would suggest investing in something a little bit more, a little bit more quality. Right now. These guys are just basic floral knives that handles or plastic. They're great for learning on because then you'll figure out what it is that you need. This is my knife here. It's actually an open, all on opening camping knife open. All if you're not familiar with that company is. Actually they make knives of all sorts. This is a camping knife, and the reason why I love this one is because it folds away beautifully, so I can always have it in my bag in my purse, wherever I'm going. But the number one reason why I love this knife the most is because when you fold it down quite often you lose a little bit of the blade into the folding mechanism. But you can notice on this one the blade goes right down to the very bottom. And this area here is the area on the knife that a florist uses the most. Okay, so if you are going to invest in a folding knife, I would stay away from your typical Swiss army knife because again about that much of the blade is taken up with the folding mechanism. Okay, so this is my baby. I've had this one for years and years, and they come in all sorts of different blade lengths as well as handle colors, just my personal preference. So then I Oh, and this is probably, I would say, between 15 and $20. So it's really not that big of an investment. Once you figure out what it is that you want, Number three are simply scissors. You just need scissors, whether it's because you're cutting ribbon, whether you need to trim off hole in a leaf, you want to smooth at the edge of something. There's always a need you want to make sure that they're super sure. And you want to make sure that these air designated for really fine snips. So whatever you do, don't use these to cut the stem of a flower or they are going to dull super quick. So these guys here, I typically use when I'm trying to precision cut a leaf that has a bit of a jagged edge that I'm trying to disguise. Uh, these guys here, I literally got them at the dollar store, and I reserved these guys specifically for cutting ribbon only. All right, so scissors. And then we start getting into the big guys. These are pruners, these air garden pruners. What is the difference between investing in a pruner and investing in a flower? Share the flower share your going to only use for soft and semi woody stems? Maybe arose Luca Dendreon those kinds of things. But when you start getting into anything that's thickened Branch E, for example, over the winter time we're working with Dogwood were using curly willow, that sort of thing. You do not want to be dulling these blades by using them on big woody bits. That's what these big guys air for, and there is definitely some that are better than others. I personally would go into a garden center and seek the advice of the people there because they're going to know with some of the top qualities, top quality brands and what t what to use. And there's a huge, huge range of prices, so you can pay anywhere from 25 up to $100 for these, it really doesn't matter. What you're getting is long as it's a quality brand. It doesn't matter how much you spend. I don't suggest getting something like this at a dollar store or somewhere cheap, because they will break very, very quickly, especially when you're using them to cut big, fat, chunky steps. So pruners on essential for sure and then moving right along wire cutters. We use a lot of cutting mechanisms here in floral design, so wire cutters really important. The reason why they're important to use is because you never want to use the used to cut wire, and that's the fastest way to do all these blades on. You don't want to use these to cut any of your wire, either clear. You definitely want to make sure that you're using these guys here. Okay? And honestly, you can get this sort of thing at dollar stores, craft stores, hardware stores and they will do just fine. The bigger they are, the easier they are to cut her wire. So if you do tend to have a weakness issue in your hands that definitely get ones that are a little bit bigger. All right, so now that we've got all of the cutters out of the way, I'm going to show you something that is completely essential. And these are actually mine, which would explain why they're completely hideous and dirty and covered in sticky sap in chlorophyll and dirt. And you name it And these air just simply garden clubs that I picked up in a dollar star. I go through these like crazy. As you can see, these guys are already starting to wear through of the reason why I like to get them there as well is because they often have a rubberized bottom to them. And so that way they don't get what a top artist fabric. So it breathes nicely, but the bottom where you're gonna be gripping and holding on to flowers, particularly when you're cleaning up and getting ready to sell them is going to keep the moisture away from your hands. There's another reason why you want to make sure that you weren't gloves. Aside from the fact that you know roses have thorns, things can be prickly. You don't want your hands to get wet. Unfortunately, a lot of the flowers that we deal with in the floral industry come from South America and other areas where their chemical laws are very, very different from ours. And so you want to make sure that when you're handling and cleaning and stripping off leaves and whatnot that you're not actually coming into contact with any of those products because, as we all know, our skin is our biggest organ, and we don't want to be absorbing any of those chemicals into our body. So make sure that you have these have lots of them on hand because yeah, they do. They do wear out quickly when you're using them on a daily basis, quite so garden gloves. The next thing that you want to make sure you have in your beginner toolkit is a bottle of water with a spray or attached. We use this for so many different things. We use it when we are processing flowers that have arrived on, and they're quite dehydrated because they've been dry packed from states or South America. Um, the pedals in that absorb some of the moisture through their pedals when we're making Kearsarge is a boot years. We like to give things mists of water, flowers just in general like humidity on DSO water bottle. Make sure that you label it because you'll notice that in the floral industry, often there are other things that can be sprayed onto them as well. And you don't want mix those up, um, dollar store. You could get a big one, a little one, whatever you want, but I just make sure that you have on hand at all times. And then I think that's pretty darn essential. You want to make sure that you have in your kids are measuring tapes. Make sure that you have one that has metric as well as imperial, because depending on your client or depending on the size, you're either going to be working in centimeters or inches. So I think these air fantastic, especially when you're taking a measurement. Say, if you need to take the measurement of somebody's head in order to do a flower crown, it's nice. And Mason Kirby, if you have like a great belong measuring tape, like a carpenter's measuring tape that's also fantastic to have in your kit. Just keep in mind that it doesn't have that bend ability that a seamstress tape will do and dollar store. This is probably one of the easiest places to find this sort of thing is a dollar store craft store, Wal Mart, that kind of place. Okay, so the measuring tape and now I'm going to get you. Have a look at some of the floral tapes that we are working with, um, on a very regular basis and these air absolutely essential for your tool kit. We have three different kinds. This one here is probably what most people associate floral designers tape to be. It's a very interesting tape because it's it's very pay Paree, and it's a little bit tacky, but it's not sticky, like your typical tape. We call this all sorts of things. I call it stem rap and essentially what you're going to do with this tape. You're gonna use it to cover wire, whether you're making a course on near or whether you are actually reinforcing a stem with some wire and then trying to cover up the wire with the tape so that you can't see it. You're gonna want to use this sort of tape. This tape comes in all sorts of different colors, depending on the course Arges years that you're making you might prefer the steps to be a dark green and all of green. This comes in black. It comes in a nice brown shade. I've even seen rainbow packs for your sort of essential tool kit. I would recommend just getting this lighter green color or there's also a dark green as well. This one is probably the one that matches the shade of most stems that are out there that are very, very soft and tender. That would require taping. So if you were just gonna invest in one, I would get this light green tape. The next tape that we use very frequently is this one here, and it is a type of cloth and it is a waterproof tape. Now this one here actually comes typically in two different winds. This one is 1/4 of an inch, but it also comes in half inch. I find that the half inches a little bit on the bulky side. My preference is the skinny one, which is the quarter inch. And this is a wonderful tape because it is waterproof when you stick it to something that's already dry. So, for example, if you were to use this tape to bind of okay, making sure, of course, that the stems are dry buying that OK? And then when you put that okay in the water and the tape comes in contact with the water, it's water proof in that it's not gonna come undone. So this is a really lifesaver for a lot of different uses, but mainly we use it when we're binding. Bo case. Okay, so this is essential. It does come in other colors, but I personally would just stick with the green. I believe it comes in white, and I've seen it in black, but for the most part, you wanted to be able to blend in with any of the greenery or stems that you're using. So definitely go with the green on, and then the final tape is this one here, which really just looks essentially like a super skinny Scotch tape. And for all essential purposes, that's what it is. It is just cut center, and it is cellophane exactly like your typical Scotch tape. It even sounds like Scotch tape when you undo it. But the reason why we use this and it's so thin is because we all use this to create a grid system on the top of days, so that when we insert the flowers, the flowers don't fall to the edge of the vase of this tape is a little bit of a florist hack. It's how we can create amazing vase arrangement, particularly Avaaz. That's got a really large opening. Then it prevents the flowers from moving all over the place and frustrating you. This will allow you to, um, put the flower where you want it to go, and it will essentially stay there. So this again is a cellophane tape. One thing you need to know about the cellophane tape is it is not waterproof, nor will it stick to anything. That is what. So when you go to meet your grid system on top. Make sure that your the rim of your boss is dry. Okay, so Sello tape cartridge available in half inch. But I would go for 1/4 and then moving right along this contraption here, this is a row stripper, And if you're just starting out in the industry, you're gonna be doing a lot of this. It's definitely one of the things that a junior florist doesn't work than anybody else. This is used for stripping roses or the leaves off of any sort of foliage. There's a lot of different types of these strippers. There are metal ones. There are flat rubber ones. This one is definitely my favorite. And so you'll notice that when I close it, there is a hole, and what you'll do is you'll put the flower in the whole the stem rather like so. And then you pull it down. And by calling it down like that, you're gonna strip away all of the leaves, all of the thorns that are on there. So this is absolutely essential. Unfortunately, it tends to be for right handed people. So if anybody out there wants to try Teoh make a $1,000,000 figure out or design one that's met specifically for lefties. That would be really, really great, otherwise, so she can hold it upside down, but it gets a little bit tricky. So, uh, specifically for right handed people. Okay, so that's the Rose stripper andan. The last two things I want to show you that are essentials for your toolkit are a couple of different wires here. So this one here is is it's bind wire. I use this a lot sometimes instead of using this kind of tape to bind my okay, so I'll use this instead. And this is Weir. But it's been coated with sort of a raffia paper, and it's just pretty. So it's not really so much a mechanical item the way the tape is, but on attractive item. Often, sometimes I will wrap the cocaine with this so that it's nice and secure, and then I'll go over the tape with this just as a way of disguising. So this is a bind wire. There's a law of different things that you can use with this bind wire. Sometimes I use it when I'm making garlands. Sometimes I use it to hang things. It's just sort of an all purpose, super handy item to have. And then we have our metal wire that's just straight up raw metal. So this wire here we purchase it in really large boxes that are about like about big. And about that long they wait a lot and it's an investment because you're getting thousands and thousands of these, but you might found a supplier that is willing to sell them in smaller quantities. Or you could go to craft stores like Michael's, and they have smaller packages of it. I would recommend anywhere between 20 and 24 gauge. You don't want to go too thick because a lot of the flowers that you're gonna be working with their very tender and you don't want that really thick, harsh wire so you can buy the wire like this. Or you can buy wire in more of these schools or in a paddle, whichever one you prefer, it makes no difference. I'm kind of partial to this since because a lot of the work that I do is off site, and so I have to bring all of my supplies with me and Usually what happens is as you can see, this ends up getting all kinked because I put it in my tool kit and it gets all bent. And I usually end up just folding it in half like this, and it gets a little bit messy, whereas this one year is just on a nice, really clean school. And this is also available Paddle wire. You get angry. Okay, so there we go. These are what I deem toolkit essentials for the beginner level. 3. Intermediate supplies: Okay, so now let's take a look at the intermediate level pieces that I would suggest adding to your tool kit If this is something that you are planning to do a little bit more hard, court adhesives are definitely a category that I would recommend adding to your intermediate level kit. So let's have a look at a few items here. Um, this year is called floral adhesive. This one's by the Oasis brand. I'm sure there's other brands out there. This just happens to be the one that my supplier carries on. This is a cold glue, Um, a tube. It is, uh, it's a little bit smelly, and we use this when we are gluing fresh flowers or leaves to other fresh flowers or leaves . It will also hear beautifully to ribbons, Mosses, other natural products. We use this a lot when we're constructing floral crowns as well as for sausages, but nears that sort of thing. So this is a floral, and he said, you're probably looking at about me Gosh, 12 to $15 for two. But this retail, if you get your flower shop to order it for you. This is something that you will have to specifically get a shop to order for you. It's not something that I'm aware of that you're able to buy Justin across store. Okay, so that's the floral adhesive. The next thing that you absolutely need to make sure that you have is a gun. You can see that this blue guys just a little 80 81. And it is well used. I have had this for years and years and years. I think I picked it up at a craft store. I've noticed that they even sell these at dollar stores. Now, you just never know when this might come in handy. Especially again. You're doing it on states on site installation and and all of a sudden something comes unattached. There's nothing like having a glue gun. Um, having the glue sticks, of course, you need to make sure that you have both. So gun in your kit for intermediate level, continuing on with sticking things pins. This is when you're making course Arges and Putin years. You want to make sure that you have a nice assortment of pins here, some that are the pearl heads. These ones are the diamond heads. Um There's also get this open to show you. I just got it in, so I have a chance to open it yet Little de amante pins. Okay on. Then there's also the black boot near pins, the ones with the little black head on them. So these air pretty essential when you start doing a problem work or wedding work, OK, so the pins and they're all available in different sizes. And again, these are something that you can pick up easily in a craft store. It's not something that you have to be ordering specifically through a flower shop. Okay, Um and then we get into something that seems maybe a little bit bizarre, scared to you that you're gonna need. But if you recognize these from maybe kindergarten class when you were making all sorts of crazy beaded bracelets and what not these air pipe cleaners, you'll notice that this box of pipe cleaners is exclusively green. Okay, They're available in white as well. When you order them through a flower shop or flower wholesale supplier, there is a lot of really great ways of using these pipe cleaners, everything from preserving, preserving and prolonging the life of a flower right up to constructing hair crowns and whatnot. So this is something that you want to make sure that your intermediate kit Onda next thing , of course, is ribbon. This is where things can start to get a little bit pricing. This is where often flower shops get into a little bit of trouble because they just keep buying more, more, more ribbon. I say that it's probably best if you invest in a few sizes, but keep it neutral either. The white, the diamond way, the Iranian creams, that sort of thing. So you'll notice that in my kid I always have just a beautiful satin double face satin. This is called a number nine. With this one here is probably at least a niche, and then I've got the white as well in in this year. And then I always make sure that I have a really narrow white in my kit as well. And these were all sort of. Just in case is, you never know when you might need a ribbon. I do find a swell that when you're doing wedding work off, you'll be using white ribbon to try to handles to tithe steppers together and that sort of thing. So start off small with the ribbons. Just get bolts that have a little amounts on them again. Craft stores I've even seen now that they're starting to sell ribbon dollar stores and discount stores, so that's a good place to look as well. So just be careful when you start investing in ribbon that it's just basic ribbon that's timeless in colors that never go to style. Okay, so really, um, and then these funny guys here, These are wooden picks, these air very peculiar. A lot of people that aren't in the industry look at these and think, What on earth are these things? So you'll notice that this is just a big bundle of these flyers and picks. And so it's a piece of wood that has this little wire attached to it. There are so many different uses for these pics, but we predominantly use them to insert a flower into floral foam when we are afraid that there's a chance that the flower might fall out. So what we will do, in essence, is lined the pick along the edge of the end of the flower wrap the wire around it, so it's secure, and then we push it into the floral foam. And what happens is because wood swells when it gets what it will swell, and then the likelihood of the flower falling out is definitely decreased. So that's just one use of many. And you'll notice that as time goes on, you'll start to wish that you had something like this just to provide you with a little bit of a security blanket. When you're doing an intricate design, thes commit all sorts of different length. This is generally the shortest length. This one here, I would say it's probably 2 2.5 inches. There were some that era's biggest six inches on day also get thicker as they go, so having a couple bundles in different sizes are more than enough. You do have to get a fairly large bundle. You're not going to go through them that quickly, and fortunately there fairly inexpensive. But it is something that you will have to get ordered from a flower shop, as opposed to just going into a craft store. Things will not carry these okay, and then finally, last but not least, it ISS for a phone. Um, floral foam. I loved designing with floral phone. There is definitely some better things going on in the industry right now with compostable or biodegradable floral forms out there. It's had a fairly bad rap for a little while, but it's getting better. I love the creativity that gets. I am very particular to this brand simply because it is firm. It doesn't it doesn't collapse. When I put larger rooms in there, it never goes mushy. Not all floral forms are floral foam Zehr created equal, so I am not endorsed in any way by Oasis Brand. But I am telling you that always this brand flora phone it's definitely top notch. OK, so these are the items that I would recommend adding to your tool kit if you're at the intermediate level 4. Advanced supplies: okay. And so this final segment is advanced products. So these air items that I would recommend adding to your tool kit, particularly if you're doing a lot of freelance designing or a lot of on site installations . So this is when you need to bring yourself to the venue, bring yourself to the site and create the designs there. Or if you're having to deliver and set things up, and you want to make sure that everything goes smoothly. So these air items for somebody that has a job that's more in that direction or who is very advanced designer, um, the first thing I can introduce you to our burning pins called burning pins. Sometimes they're called greening pins. They're just basically little steel pins that have a zigzag on the top will be able to see them in video. Better screenshot on and they come in big bundles, big bags. They get a little bit rusty over time, so the smaller the bag you can buy. The This was one of the smaller bags that I was able to get my hands on, and I've only had this in here. You can see I haven't really gone through it too much. We use this in all sorts of different installations for for sticking in Trump's of loss or sticking on a leaf into flora. Phone these sorts of things because they got these two sharp little needles on them. They are really useful for holding things on burning pins again. A very advanced purchase. Um, another thing that you want to purchase is again if you're doing installations, is fishing line because you just never know when you're going to be doing some kind of hanging installation or some kind of installation where it's just not wanting to stay where you want it to go. And so you need some sort of invisible means of holding it in place. So fishing line again. Tackle shop Wal Mart. Um, I wouldn't recommend getting something that's a pretty lightweight like this guy. Here is a £40 £40. It's gonna hold a lot of fishing line that something they want, especially for. And then here's another thing usually purchased in dollar stores. In fact, that's exactly where I got these guys from their zip ties. There, every florists secret secret weapon for on site installations when you have to hang anything. These guys aren't gonna go anywhere. Whether you're hearing Garland, whether you're hanging some kind of really big, heavy hanging chandelier of some sort. These guys have some serious weight to them. Just one of these little guys gonna hold £40. They've got the bigger and bigger and bigger ones, so you can have a nice assortment of bees. And again, you do not have to get fancy with this hardware store, Dollar store, discount store. But they are imperative to have for anything off site. Okay, um and then the last two things I want to show you are pieces that are maybe a little bit more of an investment. But again, if this is something that you're going to be doing on a daily basis, you will find very, very handy. So I'm gonna show you. Thus, this is actually my tool kit holster. Believe it or not, this is meant for a hairdresser. Stylised. There's all these great little pockets where you could put their for their knives and scissors while we use knives and scissors to This is fantastic. I've added a couple of carabiners on the side where I can hang my take. I've got a regular old measuring tape on there. I've got my scissors, My knife. This is This is fantastic. What I do recommend doing, though. He's getting one that has a strap that's adjustable so you can wear this. Crisscross across you, or you can wear it around your waist, depending on what the job is that you're doing. I personally, when I on a ladder need to have everything there right there for me. I find that it's a lot easier if I haven't nice and hugged around my waist as opposed to crisscross, because if you're reaching for things, it's going to move with you. But if it's nice and snug A so it's a belt around your waist, then you don't have to worry about it banging around or flipping upside down. So this is absolutely fantastic. This one is not even letter. It's just vinyl. Um, I figure over time some of my sisters knives will probably just put through the bottom, but so far it hasn't happened. And I probably have this three years, and it's still looking so looking really great. So holster and then finally, one of my favorite purchases of all this was probably one of the pricier things is because I have to take my tools with me. Everywhere I go, I need to make sure that I have everything in one place all the time. And as you can imagine, everything that I've shown you is a lot. And I have other things, a swell that I keep in the kit as just in cases that are just more personal preferences. So I needed to find the perfect kit that I could put everything in it. I wanted something that would open up completely so that I could see in there. I didn't want anything with a 1,000,000 different compartments because that's how things get lost. Just wanted it all in one big thing. I wanted something that was stylish. I wanted something that was on wheels because it's very, very heavy. And so this is the one that I came up with. So it's kind of like a little Pan Am bag. The beauty of this angel notice here, but it's got wheels, so I have. I am able to just basically throw this in my car and head to whatever job that it is that I have. And I know that everything is in there at all times. So yeah, that is basically everything that you would need for beginner, right up to advance. If there are any products that I have shown you today that you are interested in knowing a source of where I got it from, I'm more than happy to help you. I'm like I said, a lot of the stuff that I picked up over the years was simply from a local discount store. Some of them were just a one off lucky kind of thing that I stumbled upon. But if I do have a source, I will absolutely share that with you. So I hope this helped everybody. Um and I hope that you have fun putting together your Children.
