I was wondering if anyone had suggestions about the best books out there for learning how to make various gumpaste flowers? No flower in particular, just would like to increase my skills with these! I know there are SOOO many authors to choose from. Any suggestions on user-friendly how-to books??
My suggestion would be any Nicholas Lodge or Allen Dunn....
I am a big fan of Nicholas Lodge....and love his classes. Own all of Allen's books..but never had the chance to take a class.
Besides the 2 already listed by pp I would have to include Scott Clark Woolley's book as well.
I'd have to second the Allen Dunn recommendation.
I just made my first floral spray (really my first gum paste flowers), I didn't have the right cutters, or veiners, or wires, or petal dusts, but I did have a book by Allen Dunn! (And A LOT of blind hope!)
I've got to completely credit the great instructions/ideas from the book for the spray turning out half decent.
Thanks for the recommendations!!! I do like Nicholas Lodge's things but I'll have to check out the other ones too!!
