I am interested in starting to make a variety of gumpaste flowers and noticed when pricing veiners that they are quit costly. Just wondering how many molds of petals and leaves I would be able to make from the mold product vs. purchasing already made ones. Is it cost effective?
It is always less expensive when making your own molds. It is hard to say how many leaf veiners you can make from a certain amount of material because it all depends how large the the leaf veiner will be. I can confidently say though, that most leaves associated with flower varieties will cost five dollars or less when you make them yourself. This sounds like a good topic for a video tutorial. Would you like to see that in the future?
yes, I would love to see videos regarding this topic! I am just starting out using gumpaste/fondant and would enjoy being able to afford a variety. Cutters are easy to come by and rather inexpensive. However I am a stickler for detail and an artist at heart. I want to give my work a realistic look. Also I like variety.....variety comes at a price. I think this is the answer I have been looking for and am quit excited to get started!
