I have learned so much from Edna's youtube.com tutorials on gumpaste roses and calla lillies.
Here is what I have worked on so far. They are not perfect, but I am proud of them and know that with practice I will only get better!
Thank you Edna!!!

Beautiful! How long did you have to wait to assemble the roses? That's the only thing that frustrated me when I was making my one and only gumpaste flower, an orchid......the amount of time it took to dry and assemble.

I don't have the patience for that. It drives me nuts. I want to put it together now!!!!!!!!!! ARGH!!!!!! I sure do like how gumpaste flowers look though and yours are beautiful!!!! Excellent!!!!

The only thing that you have to wait for is the rose cone (center) to dry. As long as you use as little glue as possible when putting on the petals then you can complete your rose all at once after the center has dried.

I used super red. I only colored a little gumpaste at a time. That way I can get the darker red that I wanted alot faster. It does take alot of super red (by CK) to get it this red but I love it. It wont look quit this dark until it dries so keep that in mind.

iluvjay829 Posted 12 Aug 2008 , 1:47pm

So Beautiful! I've just started making gumpaste flowers as well and i am so excited. I haven't braved a color yet, you've inspired me to try. Keep up the beautiful work!

Ironbaker Posted 12 Aug 2008 , 2:25pm

The red is gorgeous, they look very real. Great job!

Lovely roses and lilies - well done!!
What I want to know if how Edna does her flowers with such beautiful long nails??????!!!!!! If mine were that long, I'd be gouging out holes in the paste, fondant icing etc - can you tell that I know this from personal experience ha ha ha

tonedna Posted 12 Aug 2008 , 3:42pm

lol murf..I use to fight with my piano teacher cause of my nails. She kept saying I needed them short. My problem is they grow too fast. I hate to be clipping nails every week. I even hate to do manicures every week ( I know sound unbelievable)
But I do my manicure once a month now.. And my nails..well..they are profesionally trained too!!!

debster Posted 12 Aug 2008 , 3:48pm

Edna I don't know how you work with those nails, they gotta be trained. Mine are short and I'm forever getting digs in my fondant and stuff. Maybe it's the heels , I 'll have to try that. icon_biggrin.gif

raquel1 Posted 12 Aug 2008 , 3:53pm

Your flowers turned out fabulous. Red is my favorite color and I'm thinking that after they dry and the color fades a bit maybe painting them with the color mixed w/ gin, all of this of course while wearing high heels icon_lol.gif
