get my gumpaste roses to have a shine. I'm making them right now and they look so dull.
Is there anything I can used to give them a nice shinny look and not a dry look..
over a pot of boiling water
with a tea kettle at full boil
one of those clothes steamers.
only takes a few seconds.
just remember -- do NOT touch the flower until dry.
Steam is hot hot hot -- and will burn you if not careful
PS -- is the Joffy under a new name? (if so -- mets better!)
Yes Doug is me under my new name.
Thanks for the info..now do i put them under the steam After they dry or right when I finished with them?
And sorry to say Yankees are MUCH better lol.
Steam them after they are totally dry, or else they would probably collapse.
You can also paint them when they are totally dry, if you need a brighter color than you got. Just use gel color mixed with vodka.
Thank you so much Texas_rose
