Ok, so I can make the roses ok, the problem I am having is knowing when you wrap the wire...attach the leaves, etc. Like what is the order you make your roses in??? I am really confused icon_eek.gif

Each flower is different. i suggest you invest in a good flower making book to study all of them.
with roses i make my 'bud' and then insert the wire, leave to dry overnight then add the petals, leave to dry, then add the calyx. i wire my leaves indiviually and then tape the wires together with the rose wire. some flowers like the stargazer lilly i indiviually wire the petals and leaves dry to shape over a former then tape them all together. same with all the other types of lilly i've made.
hope that makes sense and helps a bit

There are some videos online that show the steps. Google gumpaste roses or sugarflowers and you should come up with a few.
