do i use gumpaste? Also what do you use to give them color? And where do you get your molds?
Also one last q, what wire do you use?
I use those covered wires. Depending on the flower, you will have to use different gauges.
I use gumpaste or fondant with tylose as my medium.
There are plenty of ways to color it. You can use gel colors, mix dusts with fondant, paint with dusts, brush with dusts, mix fondant with powdered food coloring, etc.
What molds are you looking for? Do you mean veiners?
I use gumpaste 90% of the time. I use various covered wires in several gauges depending on the weight of the flower and petals. I use petal dusts and steam them to set the color.
I mostly use metal petal cutters and silicone veiners. I am not sure what you mean by molds unless you mean the silicone molds and for those I use a 50/50 gumpaste and fondant mix.
I use gumpaste unless I'm making quick little punch/plunger type flowers, then I use pearl clay.
To make lifelike flowers, you can roll gumpaste thinner and it is stronger.
thank you for your reply. Where do you get all of your veiner and cut outs for flowers. I want to buy for a rose, orchid ect...
