those are amazing!!!!!!!!!!
These roses are amazing. The colors just perfect. I can't tell you how impressed I am.
they are just perfect!!!
these are wonderful!! How did yoou go about colouring them to make them look so natural.
I used wilton gel colors to color the gumpaste apricot (mixed pink and orange)...then used Crystal Colors impatient pink to dust on the shading, etc. and then quickly steamed the rose to set the color.
Love your flowers! You're doing a great job! : )
Thanks Wendy :-)))))
ooh, gorgeous. How do you steam the roses?
I just heat a tea kettle and pass them thru the steam quickly. If you do it for too long, they become shiny and lose that porcelain look. Just steam them enough to set the dry coloring onto the gumpaste. I just watched my instructor and then experimented. She used a little garmet steamer in our class for convenience. I feel like I have better control with the teapot! Some people apply the colored powders to the flowers while they gumpaste is still "wet". I haven't tried this method yet.
These are incredible! I am verrrry impressed! Man, I want to learn to do this!
Carolann.....come to Anthony and we'll have a gumpaste party. I'm serious!!!!! I'll teach you!
