I just finished a gumpast peony and I love the way it came out except for the color. I do want white but it looks so flat and lifeless.

I added the faintist bit of yellow and that helped but if I add any more it will be a yellow flower and I do want white.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Pearl dust it?

I was always taught that if you wanted a white flower like a rose etc, dust the centre of the flower with some cream coloured dust, it just gives it a little lift without colouring the whole flower.

thank you eveyone.

I did a very faint dusting of both ecru and light green. I didn't want to use pearl dust cause I want a matte finish.

what do you think.

It is my first one and I did the outer petals inside out icon_cry.gif but I'm still pretty happy.

Hey, why can't I add the pic... I'll try to add to my pics
