Books by Alan Dunn are invaluable for making roses. I use a combination of his methods and a lady called tombi peck for my roses. 

They do take hours though. I've got it down to about 2 1/2 start to finish for a full one (not including time to let the petals dry a bit) and I've been making them for years. 

Of you really want to kick it up a notch though take a look at this one :)

I'd love to learn how to do this, it's utterly incredible. Sadly it doesn't look like he's visiting the UK anytime soon :(

Thanks to everyone for the responses, but I am looking for a tutorial similar to the rose.

I'm familiar with tutorials like Edna's.

Someone told me it's a tutorial by Alan Dunn. I am not sure.

It doesn't look like a Dunn rose to me. Not an expert on them by any stretch, but I have his book of roses among others of his flower books, and I haven't seen anything like that in it :/

i agree w/you lizzybug, it's a lovely creation and while it doesn't have to be it's not botanically correct, it has a nice tight scroll roll in the center and the petals were pressed in a mold so the coloring takes on highs and lows -- it's a real nice rose but you can make it like that from watching any rose tutorial --
