This is  morning glory mold.  I have one - different brand.  They can be very tricky.  Your gum paste should be nice and pliable.  Roll it out and lay the paste over the pointed end.  let it sit for a minute so it relaxes on the mold.  You have to be gentle when placing and pushing the two pieces together. 

 

When I first started using it, I left the middle of the gum paste a little thicker until I got the hang of it.  I find Nickolas Lodge and Platinum Paste work best. 

 

Here's a pic - still in progress:

I use corn starch on both pieces (sorry , forgot to add that) and then I tap the deep one so I don't lose the detail.  I can't tell you about Isomalt - no experience there.

 

I will tell you that mine sat in my box for a long time.  One night I just played with it until I made it work without the bottom of the flower tearing.  You can do this - MIND over MOLD :)

You're so welcome.  It's a pretty neat mold.  I also suggest that you have your center with  stamens ready to go.  Please let me know how you made out.
