Course 4 Advanced Gum Paste Flowers

I've been quite busy with classes and kiddies for awhile that I haven't had the chance to post anything. Well, I'm finished with my Advanced Gum Paste Flowers course and I received my certificate. Wooo Hoooo!!! : ) This is what we learned in class...

We learned how to create different sorts of flowers, flower buds and leaves. We learned the different sizes of wire gauges and how to wrap the wires with florist tapes. We learned how to paint the flowers as well. I need more practice to get the flowers just right.






















Ivy leaves....






















Lily leaves....



















Gerbera Daisy... She loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not....





















No worries my sweet boy, mummy's got another one.. : )




















She loves me!!! : )






















Briar Rose...

















Stephanotis... I chipped it on the way home and didn't get to put the stamen in.






















Sweet Pea... It kinda got flattened.






















Blossoms...







































Stargaze Lily..







































Flower Bouquet... I haven't attached the leaves just yet.






















Oh, and this is my work area. I like took over 2 and a half tables. It's alright though there were plenty of space the tables were small. It worked out for everyone though we all took over 2. : )
