Help! I need to make miniature iris for a client- Anybody have any ideas that would not include wiring petals? They only need to be about 1-1/2 inches, without the stem. Any help will be sooo appreciated! I'm really at a loss here! Thanks for any help!

Sorry, I don't work with gumpaste but you could make it with buttercream. When I make my Irises I use a tip #104 but you could use a #101 and make the Iris tiny. If you made it on waxed paper you could let it air dry and lift it off. They do have to be handled carefully though as they are quite fragile after air drying.
