i finally gave in and attempted a more realistic rose (as seen in the tutorial done by tonedna on youtube. thank you, edna!!). here's the result and also a little progression time line of the very first duff rose to the most recent normal rose i've done.

still work to be done, but okay i guess for a newbie.

WOW!!! That pink rose is gorgeous! You certainly are talented. I just tried Duff roses for the first time today. I've not loving them so far, but I'll give it more practice.

Your roses look fantastic!! The rose on the right looks REALLY realistic. You really thinned out the petals well and it makes it look real.

Good Job!! thumbs_up.gif

Those do look good. Even from the Wilton 5-petal cutter to the roses Tonedna teaches you'd be amazed.

Good Job!

You should be stinkin' proud of your success! You did a great job...I seriously wouldn't have thought that they were your first!

thank you all so much!! the pink rose on the left was rolled out with my pasta machine as thin as i could get it to go, which was so not thin enough. then i did the rolling by hand which resulted in the rose on the right, better!

and to be honest, they weren't exactly my first roses, but they are the first ones i didn't get so frustrated with that, while making, i crumpled them up into a little ball and threw into the trash can! so, progress for sure!

thanks, again! icon_biggrin.gif

Are Duff roses the ones where you cut three circles and roll up? Or are there other Duff roses?

that's them. though, i use 5 and then add more after i roll them up. 3 and 5 seem too dainty for me.

Well done! I am telling you now that you have no business working in a retail clothing store. Get your butt out there and get into the field you have a passion and talent for. Way too many kids flounder around not knowing what they want to do. You are lucky that you know what you are good at.
