This is a collage of the my gumpaste flowers with the actual flower picture sent to me by the bride. My flower experience was one class on tropical flowers with Nicholas Lodge which was amazing. It gave me the confidence to say "I can do that!" I didn't have cutters for this flower but no worries. I shaped my own with fine needle nose pliers from inexpensive, plain round metal cutters. Each flower consisted of 13-14 seperate hand painted parts. I was really proud of the final result and how closely they resembled the real ones.
