when making flowers I always "hook" the end of the wire and then dip it in water, shake off the excess and then stick it into the center of the flower.

with leaves, I forgo the hook and just wet the wire and stick it into the leaves, the water reacts with the gumpaste and it forms a "glue" around the wire and when it's dry it doesn't budge!
