What are you most proud of? I like the spots on the petals :o)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think Vanda's are supposedly the easiest Orchid to try first, so a good place to start!

Please can you help me James. I have to make Vanda orchids for a wedding cake and am nervous that when I position the spray on the cake the purple will smudge the white icing. I have tried glazing the petals with a spray but the glaze alters the colour very noticeably, it goes from purple to a bluish colour! Any tips, I'm getting desperate!

And if I could make them a tenth as beautiful as yours I would be over the moon. You are amazing!
