I was wondering if any of you have some tips to dusting white gum paste roses. I would like to make a bunch up and color as needed. I haven't had much luck though, they always look splotchy to me. Do you recommend any sort of dust, I have used chalk, and luster dust, and it doesn't have the look I am trying to achieve. thanks
I think your problem may be due to the tools you are using rather than the colorant. I bought a good set of paint brushes and a good set of makeup bruses. they need to be fluffy and soft. Then use your colorant very lightly. You can allways add more. knock any loose dust off the brush before you go to the rose. Also I would reccomend getting up close and personal with some real roses and pull them apart so you can see what shades to use and where as well as how heavy to apply the color. HAVE FUN!
Ya, exactly what she ^^^^ said
Sounds great, I think that is my problem, thanks
I use a base of extract or vodka with color and let dry and then I dust them. I do this with all my flowers. I make all mine white and color as needed. Even my leaves. This way I can build a stock of flowers and color as I go.
