Gumpaste rose - first try.

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 
This is my 1st try, with making a gumpaste rose. I used Rosemary Watson's video (which I converted to DVD). I also used Jeff's picture tutorial on how he makes gumpaste roses. I want to make the flower formers. I haven't made them yet. I did use spoons though.

I live in Hawaii, where it's quite humid, but these dried and harded. Thank you to everyone on this forum who helped me with getting fixodent and tylose. I really appreciate it!

I am very jelous, I have made several roses from fondant/ gumpast, and none come close to being this beautiful. If this is how you start out, I will be very amazed after you have had practice.

Thank you! I tried making the base of the gumpaste before, but because it's humid here it turned into mush. Now that I have a gumpaste that won't react to humidity. I finally tried this out.

Have you checked out Rosemary Watson's video? I have the magazine where she shows how she makes her roses. I can scan it, if you want?

Wonderful job Leilani. I actually like yours better than Rosemary's, they aren't as stiff or rigid as hers. I just read back on your post and see you didn't make the former. I think the former is what makes the petals look too stiff and pointed, the spoons give a softer more natural look to them.

Smart to convert that VHS tape. If you ever come across her Bakers Dozen or her Lace Wraps tapes you should grab them if they are affordable. I have seen them go for big money on eBAY.

Thanks ShirleyW! I actually have Rosemary's Baker Dozen video too! I got it before she closed her website. I don't have all her cutters etc. It's a great video though!

This is a beautiful rose. I have made a few, but they aren't very good. What is Jeffs picture tutorial? And where can I get it? You did a fantastic job.

You did such a very, very beautiful job on your rose and for the first time? I haven't even touched gumpaste roses yet. I'm still learning buttercream and royal icing roses. You did a superb job. You should give yourself a pat on the back. icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

Here's the post for his link. http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/409694647SCfrnv He's got some really nice flowers and I like his roses!

I'll upload the Rosemary Watson tutorial thing too.

Wow. It truly is beautiful. Good job. Can you please tell me which recipe you used because I also live in a humid country and often end up with mushy roses.
There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who wont anymore, & who always will. So don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
