I just finished them. Here they are:
I was going for a peony but I changed my mind since it would be too big for a ball of flowers so I just made fantasy flowers. I also made sweet peas and some other fantasy flowers. The four petal flowers are actually store bought--just to fill in the gaps.
I wanted to take this time to thank the people who have helped me with the instructions.
Holy crap - im turning green right now - those are like off pinkcakebox - i absolutly love them and wish i have the tools, patience and talent to make that
Wow, Rylan, those are gorgeous!
Thank you girls. Judi, when you make you individually wired petals, what wire do you use? I got two packs for 15 dollars and I ran out right away. I'm looking for something more affordable.
Very very nice!!
Those are soo beautiful! Awesome job.
I haven't made individually wired petals...I don't have a lot of flower cutters yet so I've pretty much stuck to making roses. I think 26 gauge paddle wire would work though, that's what I use for very thin leaves.
Thank you all.
As for the paddle wire, does the leaves come off or turns around since it isn't covered?
No, they don't turn around as long as you don't mess with them until they're dry. You can also cover it with floral tape before you put the leaves on (or petals, white floral tape would probably work for that). If you tear a strip of floral tape in half the long way, then it's not as bulky wrapped around a wire.
Good job Rylan
and it took you 12 hours only wow I wish I could make something like this. great job
Judi thanks for the info.
Edna and conchita, thank you as well.
you never cease to amaze!
you never cease to amaze!
Great work. They're kinda mini peonies sorta with wild centers.
Nice work though.
Where did you get this wire? Did you see the stuff on Global Sugar art??? It's a lot cheaper pretty sure. I think it's 50 long pieces per package
Thanks Peg and Kate.
Kate, I actually got the wire at Global Sugar Art. I use the 20 and 26 (or was it 28?) gauge wire and It was about $13. I used them all with just a couple left.
I love love them, they are totally awesome, your flowers rock.
Ry check Jen Dontz's site she has the cheapest floral wires that I have seen online.
You did an AMAZING job! Congrats! They look beautiful!
I'm not sure what floral wire you all are using that cost that much, but the wire I use with gumpaste flowers and leaves is bought at Crafts 2000 in the floral section. There are about 20-30 , 12" long floral wires in a package for less than a dollar. I usually cut them in fourths. They have all different gauges.
Is there something Im missing or something special about your wire?
Okay, I looked at the ones on Global Sugar. They are the wrapped wires. Thats what Im buying for like 72 cents a pack.
Allison, thanks. I'll also check her site out and see.
Paul, thanks! Also, thanks for the help.
Ttehan, I got mines at Global Sugar Art. I'm not sure but I think they are specifically made for making gumpaste flowers--again I'm not sure.
I should also check what you are referring to out.
Thats what I'm talking about !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rylan you got the touch, send me some of that magic
Rylan, those are absolutely gorgeous. That is were I want to be with the flowers ,I will keep on practicing
I don't know, Rylan.
You leave me speechless.
I'm in awe.
You make me want to use bad words to express my admiration of your work.
So clean and flawless.
so @$%%$%$#%^%$^%$ clean and $%$%^%^%$^%$^ flawless!
Those are gorgeous
Your flowers are beautiful. I can almost enjoy the fragrance! You have done a job to be very proud of.
Thanks Peg and Kate.
Kate, I actually got the wire at . I use the 20 and 26 (or was it 28?) gauge wire and It was about $13. I used them all with just a couple left.
Ok wait--I don't know how many you used but you wired each petal right? then did you use each wire long as they came or did you cut them into smaller pieces? Like I cut my wire into, 4, 5, or even 6 pieces each. So I wind up with 200 to 300 pices per pack.
I mean sometimes I use them real long but not for petals like the ones you've made. If I needed that flower longer for some reason after I made all the petals I'd take one length and florist tape it all up together.
I don't think you can beat natural talent and you sure have it! I love to see your cakes!
Rylan - they are breathtaking! You have sooo much talent!! You need to start thinking of the design of your cake for ICES - I know whatever you make will be a star of the show in San Diego! I wish you were closer, we would have you come to our cake club to teach demos!
