Does anyone own the book FLOWERS APLENTY by GERALDINE RANDLESOME? What are your thoughts on it?
no and it's not listed on amazon either-- i have the art of gumpaste flower making by gr and i was thinking it might be a bit similar to the yours and so i went looking on amazon to see if i could get a look inside the book -- no go--
but all that to say the gr one i have is like the scott clark woolley book, cakes by design, where if you already know how to make flowers -- and shoot nowadays you can just look up a you tube so you're there -- if you already know how to do it these books will fill in a lot of gaps as to how to arrive at a ton of specific flowers & leaves --
both the woolley & randlesome books i'm talking about have pencil step by step drawings as to make a myriad of flowers-- not sure about the one you are inquiring about -- what is the copyright date? after 2002? it might just be a revision of the art of gumpaste flower making (2002) because it's itself a revised version of gumpaste flower making (1985) so... there's that anyhow
best to you
It's on her website. I saw it in one of my ACD mags maybe last year and it seems to show how to make quite a few flowers using one set of cutters. Doesn't seem like it'd be a revision. I'd checked on Amazon too and saw the one you've got. It took me forever to figure how to navigate her site to find this one. Guess I'll HAVE to go buy it... Will let you know.
i really like her-- i got to see her do a demo at ices about 12 years ago -- she's pretty cool
