calla lily

I'm planning on placing these flowers on a cake this weekend. They're made of gumpaste. I also have g.paste butterflies to place on the cake. I was wanting to use bc, but will it be difficult for me to get the decor to stay on the cake.
Thx!

Thanks. I used pink Pearl Ex powder (on the stamp isle @ Micheals). First coat was mixed with ETOH. Second coats where dry brused on. I also added some gold & green. Then I steamed the flowers. I actually wanted the flowers to be a little lighter pink. This is the first time that I've used the Pearl EX. The stemans are too big in the smaller flowers. Oh, well don't think anyone will notice @ the party.

Cool flowers. I do have a question which may be "dumb". Are they edible? If they are I think that I'm going to have to get some of the ink you used.

Yes, I guess they are "edible", although if you bit into one, you would probably chip several teeth (ha-ha). I would not recommend for any to eat dried gumpaste. Hard as a rock!

What is Pearl Ex powder (on the stamp isle @ Micheals) and ETOH?

They are going to LOVE them!

Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure that I got it @ JoAnn. I go to the craft stores so much, I get them confused. Pearl Ex is actually stamping powder. It's sold in little containers like the luster/pearl dust. You can either dry brush it on or mix it with alcohol (Vodka) or extract & paint it on.

Pearl Ex is a pigment powder used by rubber stampers. Their web site mixes it with just about any medium (ink, clay, paint, etc.) but not anything edible. The web site says it is safe and non-toxic, but I personally would not want to eat it. Your flowers are beautiful. I have not used Luster or Pearl Dust yet, but would they give the same effect?

Neither have I. This is my first experience using the pearl ex. I like using it & it's cheaper if you have a coupon. I have dusted regular chalk onto flowers.
