Step 5: Make the realistic stamen from very simple suppliers

Wrap a tissue paper to the head of wire gauge#20 to make the stamen core shape

Cover a lot of white glue and grounded rice on the stamen head.

The natural color of rice is quite similar to the natural white stamen Calla lily.  After trying with the yellow stamen, I prefer the white one.

I have tried many ways to imitate the original stamen for previous 7 flowers, this is the best and the last one, so I share this way only.
