I thought I was being a rocket scientist and I got a ton of the brown florist tape to make some baby's breath--and it seems all the gypsophila aka baby's breath I've been getting/seeing has brown stems--but I just got some b's b at the store & the stems are beautiful light green--dang dang dang--I have some light green florist tape somewhere.
So do you think brown is good or should I make it green?
My wires are white so I could color those green & tape it with the brown.
Multi color green and brown?
White and brown??
White and green?
Over think much, Kate? Why thank you I think I will.
Ok--I found some old light green florist tape in a drawer finally, wiped off the random assorted spots of icing and powdered sugar--b's b looks so-o pretty made up!!!
I am using dessicated coconut (chopped up in the food processor) wonder if I should add a little edible glitter??? Think I will.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled message board.
i would love to see how your BB comes out, i cant imagine making it.
Hey k8 you weren't wrong........dried baby's breath has brown stems.......the fresh stuff has green.
This sounds like a very interesting undertaking.......please post pics when you're finished. I can't wait to see it.
Aww you guys are so sweet...I had tried to get a shot & it just sucked
so I tried again...--came out not as puny as the first...
And here's a pictorial I did using chocolate and edible glitter--but this time I'm using piping gel and coconut so it holds better.
Yeah shoot (about the colors) I don't know what I was thinking I guess I just had never paid attention to fresh baby's breath before. I mean I did notice that it never really hardly died (the stuff with brown stems that I usually get) but duh on me.
edited to say--btw--that's a booboo rose just to give proportion
I'm thinking I should prolly dust the white stems with green huh? But I think I'll get green all over everything.. think I'll skip it this time...hmmm...maybe if I brush right before I dip in the piping gel--that will work!
I have Michele Fosters video and she uses white wire for the babys breath (if I remember correctly -- I haven't watched it in a while.)
Wow thanks so much for that turorial k8, now I want to make some baby's breath! They look great.
You're welcome, Deb.
Thank you, BWonBuns!!
