Thanks Glenda. Your gardenia is just as beautiful as your roses are. I will be using the dvd this weekend to practice. I'll post some pictures when I get some roses made.

I am looking forward to seeing your results. Remember to really squeeze hard when you are forming your cones for the rose base, and don't start curling your petals too soon.

Here's another copy of the instructions--thay are originally back on page three of these posts:

LL

 

Begin by forming a shallow bowl approximately 5 inches in diameter from aluminum foil.

Next, cut and vein three to five leaves from gum paste that has been colored dark green. I used a large rose petal
cutter. To give them a pretty sheen, brush with a mixture of dark green color mixed with lemon extract or Everclear alcohol. Arrange them in the center of the foil bowl. Slightly overlap at the bases of the leaves, and moisten where they overlap with a small amount of gum glue.

Thin and stretch 6 petals. Roll the long sides under and attach to the leaves with a small amount of gum glue. Space them equally. These petals are what gives the Gardenia its characteristic pinwheel look.

Next, shape a short, plump cone of gumpaste and set aside. Using a round cutter approximately one inch in diameter cut 5 small round petals from gumpaste rolled medium thin. Slightly thin the edges, then vein with a rose petal veiner brushed with a small amount of Silk White luster dust. Attach the petals in a spiral shape around the cone. Cut away any excess from the bottom and set aside. Allow the cone to dry while you prepare the remainder of the petals.

Using a round cutter approximately two inches in diameter cut approximately 12 petals from gumpaste rolled medium thin. Slightly thin the edges and vein with a rose petal veiner lightly dusted with Silk White luster dust. As you finish each petal, lay it on either large bubble wrap, or egg crate type foam. This will allow the petals to firm up and dry slightly in a more natural shape. Before the petals are too dry, begin attaching them in a circular, overlapping pattern on top of the leaves. Prop some of the petals with small pieces of tissue, foam, or fiber batting to give them some movement.

When you have completed the circle of petals, slightly moisten the bottom of your finished cone and place it in the center of the petals. Add more petals as needed to blend in the cone. Be sure to maintain the spiral effect that is unique to the Gardenia.
