I made GP roses for the first time....they are fully dried but I noticed they have cornstarch marks on them. How do I get rid of them...they are red roses and I dont have any red petal dust or anything. Can I airbrush them with vodka or something??

Please help icon_cry.gif

I take a dry brush and try just brushing it off. If that doesn't work i would think air brushing them would do the trick. I think i would use color though not just plain vodka.

Using a dry brush is best.. (airbrushing won't take the marks off but depending on the amount & color it could cover it up)..
Try using less CS when you make them or brush the excess off right when you make your flowers rather than wait till they're dry.

I would steam them - solves a lot of problems, seems easier than cracking out the airbrush. Just pass through some steam (kettle, pan of water) - not too much or they get soft! Should work - and if u use dusts, helps to set them.

maybe try a bit of crisco on a paper towel or qtip?

Steam them. A quick pass thru the steam from a boiling kettle, pot, or pan will do fine.

Quick, easy, little risk of breakage.

Thanks everyone for your replies icon_smile.gif

Think I am going to run them by the steamer for a bit. I'm sure this will help icon_smile.gif
