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.

Q&A with cjtay

nanny2 asked:
wish you had some free videos , doesn't do me any good just to look.
cjtay answered:
I did not post it with the intent of giving instructions.
piglet510 asked:
what flower petal cutter did you use and what brand?
cjtay answered:
i used a petal cutter with petals that can be pressed into the gum paste, plus round cutters for the wired large petals. I painted the variations on dark red petals after the initial rose was made from the petal press, and then after the wired petals were dried, I painted them and put everything together. For the dark verigated color, I used a dark red food gel color.
