Not sure how much time you have but the speed up the drying process, I turn the light on in the oven and place the gumpaste pieces in there.  Good luck

Is the rose beyond repair with a dab of RI and a swoosh of petal dust? Sorry if thats an obvious stupid remedy to a crisis.

I was also thinking can this be saved? Can you pull the wire back through, glue the underside with either RI or white choc (in a place where it can't be seen of course) and repair where the wire came through?

I had good luck with a repair with a mixture of egg white and gumpaste, as shown by Nicholas Lodge.  Make a thick paste and use to glue.



Good luck to you!
