Morning My Mensa TeAM!

I have to ask...

I use petal dust for all my flowers then I steam them of course...I have notice some blotching sometimes... anyone knows why?


any tips and/or tutorials in Airbrushing flowers.... I saw Cake Girls doing it... and I want to try but not sure how do u airbrush two colors without overlapping the first color all together.

like in this pic below... how do they get JUST THE EDGE to be black?????

It's a bit hard to really see the flowers in this pic. Are you certain it was airbrushed? Sometimes, when you have good control of the airbrush....and that's the key...

You can use low pressure on the trigger to get a fine line as you airbrush, and that gives more control over where it goes vs higher pressure that makes for a wider spray pattern.

Me....I haven't really gotten the hang of it yet. icon_redface.gif

I wish I were that good! I have an airbrush, but haven't had time to do much practicing! I would love to get really great at it!
