I ordered and received my rose cutter and it seems so small. I ordered a 50 mm. To those experienced gum paste rose makers, what size do you typically use?

Hi, I use the five petal cutter. I think you need to have few different sizes of cutters as you add few layers of petals you need to have bigger petals to add to the outside.

Hope that make sence!

Most of the ones in my gallery were made with a 100 mm. I do have the 50 but have yet to use it. I would like to get the 110 for the outermost petals on 100 mm rose...just haven't gotten around to, for the outermost petals, I use a teardrop shaped cutter.

Well shoot...I wish I would have ordered a bigger size. I wanted to play this weekend icon_sad.gif.

You can still play, just make smaller roses

Did you make any? I wanted to see what size they turn out....

post #7 of 8 it is...not as easy as it looks. The biggest problem I had was getting the petals out of the cutter. If I poked through the hole in the middle of the cutter to pop it out, I poked a hole. I ordered the bigger cutters, I can't wait until they get here.

It turned out great!

That sure is a small one, ain't it? That makes me want to make some. Maybe I can do one or two while I'm making the flowers for next weekend.
