I was wondering if anyone has tried dipping/painting white gum paste flowers and then using petal dust over the paint (photos would be great!).
I want to make a stockpile of gumpaste flowers that I can color as I need them. However, petal dust is sooo expensive and I don't want to waste a jar trying to get a deep, yet still natural looking color.
I have also thought of making flowers in the usual base colors (i.e. pre-tinting gumpaste in light red, yellow, white, green, pink, orange) and then petal dusting those as needed. BUT, this method means I have to keep a lot more flowers in stock since I won't know which color I'll be needing.
thanks in advance for your feedback!
