I need to know if anyone has tried this recipe and if it's good... I see that in GSA, they sell Petal Paste.... I am wondering if this is better than gumpaste to make flowers... and if this recipe is in fact the petal paste recipe...

I appreciate any and all comments/experiences with this recipe... I don't see any comments on the link and I am wondering if is it just another term for gumpaste....

I've used both & they are pretty much the same.
Petal paste is the same to me & works very well.
One has tylose the other gum trag... same effect :0)
I use Nick Lodges, & love it.

I also use Nichola's.. Just wondering what is petal paste.... I haven't had any problems though... Thought make make the petal less fragile after they dry.... I shattered over 12 orchids while traveling... Heartbreaking... We know how hard it is to mke a lifelike flower...

Yes we do... the ever strive for perfection :0)

The recipe you gave had tylose in it instead of trag... that is the only difference :0)
I've used both & have had same results..

Sorry about the breakage... Heart wrenching I know.

so I will stick with the Nicholas Lodge one then... I know it and have used it.... so I don't see the point in trying a new one if there is nothing diffrent....
