I'm going to play around before my final product in a couple weeks, but I'm wanting to do some fall color flowers & leaves (roses, carnations, mums, cala lily) and am wondering where should I start w/ petal dusts. I am about to place an order so I can order new ones.
I'm thinking reds, burgundy, orange, yellow. But I know flowers have different shades & I get overwhelmed at the choices. What do you guys use most of?
Also, what color gumpaste do you start out w/ if you're wanting darker flowers like fall colors?
Thanks in advance
I think you nailed fall colors with the red, burgundy, orange, and yellow. That's exactly what I think of when I think of fall.
Well, I was hoping for specifics b/c I was placing an order. Well, I ordered 12 colors b/c I couldn't decide. Hopefully there'll be what I need
I'm sorry you didn't get the response you were looking for. When I need a color I usually go to the galleries and do a search. When I find a color I want, if the decorator didn't say how they acheive the color, I will pm them.
One decorator I need to send a big thanks to is dellboi2u for helping me with sage green.
When I think of fall colors, I think of warm and earthy colors. I'd get some browns just so you can tame the vibrancy of each color.
I got different shades of brown, green, red, orange & yellow. I figure I'll use them eventually anyway. At least it'll give me a lot to play with
