Has anyone ever used Nicholas Lodge's DVDs for gumpaste instruction? If so, is this a good way to learn gumpaste flowers? Are books better to learn from than the DVDs? Thanks!
His DVDs are great! I had one, loaned it to someone who got a divorce and moved out of state and I never saw it again. Bummer. He's a great teacher, though. I've also been in his class once and enjoyed it a lot.
Michele Foster (Sugarflowers) also has a gumpaste flower DVD that you can order from www.lickthespoonproductions.com
I have all his DVDs - each is terrific and invaluable when learning. The best I've seen.
I also agree that he is a wonderful instructor. He is very through in his details. I have three and they were well worth the money.
I have them all, too - excellent way to learn, and very reasonably priced.
Books are a good way to learn as well. Alan Dunn, Nick Lodge, and Leslie Herbert are my favorites. They all have wonderful detail and easy to understand instructions.
