Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake sugar paste,floral wire,floral tape,gel paste food color super red,gum glue. What are you most proud of? That this turned out nicer than I had anticipated. I am very glad that I have stuck with my craft. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Paint the petals as you add them. The petals on the wires,of course,have to be completely dried before adding to the base petals of the flower. Add one wired petal at a time.
