What are you most proud of? The cage and parrot tulips

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use dried egg whites instead of meringue powder and powdered color instead of gel color for the cage. It will make the cage much stronger structurally.

Lana that is so beautiful - was it very difficult?

Thank you. Overall it wasn't too difficult, but certainly time costuming. The cage was about 6 hours worth of work. Oh and you have to be careful inserting the flowers so close to the cage. Mine were all wired so I had a few places break but because of the cage design you really couldn't tell.

I love the cage's design. It is dramatic and really effective. A great work!
