Gumpaste Tulip Tutorial - Make Holland, Turkish and Parrot Tulips

Kaye Hartman shows you step-by-step instructions for making three variations of gumpaste tulips; Holland, Parrot, and Turkish. She walks you through creating the centers, including how to wire and model them. Learn how to wire the center, pistils, and petals for a realistic looking flower. You'll cut and vein the petals using her tips for wiring each petal with a hook, to prevent the dry petal from moving on the wire. Kaye shows you how to use petal dust to add dimensional color to the petals.
