Then roll out your gumpaste nice and thin.
As I stated no cutter so I improvised and used a Calla Lilly cutter that I had on hand and then modified the petal shape. Easy peasy. (Please ignore the lighter. I use that to adhere my centers of flowers to the wires. I heat the wire and then add the center so that the gumpaste melts a little on the hot wire and stays in place. No need to wait for a whole day for your centers to dry).
Then place the wire in the center of the new petal and into a veiner. I used a generic veiner that I had on hand.
Then comes the color. I like to work from the outside of the petal in. I always use more that one color to make the petals seem more life like.
Here is my completed petal.
OK, time to start putting the petal together. I start with on petal at a time but if you want to tape more together at once then go for it. I like to put as little tape on to hold the petal there so that way you do not have a bulky stem. Then after you have all your petals I wrap the tape around the whole stem to cover it, and hold it all together.
After the flower petals are taped you can arrange them however you would like.
