This morning I watched Tonedna's, (our very own Edna De la Cruz @ www.Designmeacake.com), new Stargazer Lily DVD and just had to tell you all how wonderful the dvd is!
I think what impresses me the most is Edna does a superb job of speaking and teaching to the entire audience, whether you are a beginner having never made a sugar flower before, or an advanced artists wanting to learn a new flower! If I had never made a sugar flower before this would be the dvd I would want to have in order to learn how to make this gorgeous Stargazer Lily and literally bring in to life as Edna so perfectly does!!
If you are even thinking about learning sugar flowers you need to seriously consider getting this one!
Edna explains everything from the difference in luster/petal/pearl dusts, the various brushes to use for dusting and painting on gumpaste, each and every tool she uses, the board she uses and why she prefers this particular board, and so much more!
IMO the value is excellent too! You get over 2 hours of professional teaching here icon_eek.gif and you don't have to go anywhere to learn it! I love it!!!

I could go on and on!!!! icon_lol.gif
My only hope now is for her to make more, lots more of these individual flower tutorials!

Edna, if you read this I hope you will fill us in on any future plans you may have for making more sugar flower dvd's! you can not tease us with just this one awesome dvd! That is like dangling a carrot in front of a starving horse!! icon_lol.gif
Thank you so much for such an awesome lesson in making your gorgeous Stargazer Lily!! thumbs_up.gif I can hardly wait to get one made! You rock!!! thumbs_up.gificon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

( That is like dangling a carrot in front of a starving horse!! )

You are to Funny LOL when i read that part i pictured my self wanting that carrot. and busted out laughing noticing what i just did.

I do agree with you about Edna videos she is very detailed in her videos and explain things very well. Once I get a chance I will be buying her video. And when I go down to Orlando to visit my family I hope I get a chance to stop by her shop and say Hello.

I also have to Say that if Edna has any extra time, if she can do a video on how to apply Make-Up. I would love to do my Make-Up like she does but i don't know how.

I'll be waiting and looking for that video as well when it comes out. "Hint Hint Edna" LOL

If that DVD is anywhere near as good as her tutorials on Youtube, then it has to be fabulous.

I'm glad the beautiful Edna has decided to sell DVDs. We have profited so much from her free YouTube tutorials - now it's her turn to profit! Yay!

I love DVDs that teach our art - I'm carrying all five of Sharon Zambito's with me in a tote, watching them in fits and starts at lunch at work and after dinner on my laptop.

Believe it or not, it is even better than the Youtube vids! She EVEN outdid herself this time!!! icon_lol.gif

Grandmom, you make a very good point! Edna has "shown" all of us so much without hesitation! She does deserve some return from us now, I agree!
I too have Sharon's dvd.......except the last one which is on my "to get" list. icon_smile.gif

tonedna Posted 17 Sep 2009 , 9:18pm

oh wow..Im speechless...Thanks for the wonderful comments.. thanks teekakes, Im so glad you liked it!

Now,. the reason why I came with the DVD is cause I cant fit all the information of
the sugar flowers in a 10 minute tutorial in youtube. So many people kept asking for more flowers, and even though I did the calla and the rose for youtube I had to cut so much information out of them and then piece it in segments I was not totally happy with them. But I have to say people that dont have access to much materials, love the
youtube tutorials.

So I did this one using cutters that are accesible. So people wouldnt have a hard time
finding cutters for it. I do want to do more flowers. So until the next one my little shop
has one DVD. I just wanted it easy enough so beginners could start playing with gumpaste. And in addition I did it in chapters so people dont have to fuzz through all the video looking for a specific part. Eventually I want to do a full edition in roses and callas DVD.

Im still getting used to doing all this shipping and handling stuff! But Im happy with the reactions I been getting.

I will keep doing my tutorials in youtube. I love to teach, what kind I say. But then again, my main job is doing Wedding Cakes. So one step at a time. And hopefully with time all with get done.

Makeup tutorials...well...mmmmm..lol..that would be funny..

Hi Chilz..........It will be monday or tuesday before I can make one. I ordered the little Stamen mold from GSA this morning early. They already sent me a shipping notification so my pkg should be here by tuesday at the latest. I will be making one as soon as I have that little mold in my hand and will post a picture of it! icon_smile.gif

Editing to say here is the link to the mold I ordered to do the stamens;

You will need this mold unless you want to shape by hand. I'm not good at shaping tiny little things such as these!

Uniqueask Posted 18 Sep 2009 , 6:12pm

Hi Teekakes, I just got mine in the mail, I am very excited to watch it, Unfortunetaly I did not buy the veiner at the time, did not have enough money, but I will get it next week I will also the the mold for the stamens next week thanks for the link, can't wait to see your flowers

Uniqueask Posted 18 Sep 2009 , 6:22pm

I also just ordered the cookie cutter set from GeminiRJ and they came too, she also sent me the templates of some of her cookies, that she has in her gallery, I love her and I miss her so much, hopes she gets back on really soon

chilz822 Posted 18 Sep 2009 , 6:48pm

Yes you sure do teach how to do them without the mold! icon_biggrin.gif But my big old fingers don't do so well with the little tiny things like your talented little digits do! icon_lol.gif
All you young amble fingered little ladies can make all those little tiny things all day long.....but give me the mold! icon_razz.gif

MaryAllison Posted 18 Sep 2009 , 8:09pm

I've attempted to place an order for the DVD. Is the veiner also available on this site?

Uniqueask Posted 18 Sep 2009 , 8:58pm

Yes the veiner is available on her site
