I have an order coming up in about a month that requires black gum paste orchids. I would like to purchase the flowers, if possible, instead of making them. I googled all sorts of prases but I couldn't find any sites that sell black gum paste orchids.

Any suggestsions?

Do you have an airbrush? You can get white quite easily and paint them yourself. Sounds pretty.

I do not have an air brush. Can I hand paint them without the flowers looking runny?

You could dip them in black liquid colour diluted with alcohol, just when you dip them dont leave them in for long or they will melt,
just dip, take out and twirl the wire so excess colour comes off, i'v e never done it with black but have with deep red and the results were great!
