NO CUTTER REQUIRED – Twiddle flower -gum paste onto a 28 gauge floral wire, leaving a bulbous end at the top of the wire. Pinch out the end and roll with a small rolling pin to fit across the whole petal area, resembling the Mexican hat method. Insert the covered wire into one half of the throat cavity, join the veiners together and vein. Remove the top lid (flower part) first, remove excess paste from around the flower petals and throat using a mini palette knife.
This distinctive range of Botanically Correct Products By Sugar Flower Studio are designed by master sugar artist Robert Haynes. These quality products can be used to replicate time and again, stunning lifelike flora in any edible or non-edible medium of your choice.
Robert personally selects each petal, leaf, flower centre, fruit and bud to create a double-sided silicone mould capturing their shape, vein structure and unique botanical imprint, giving you the ultimate tools to reproduce stunning results.
Edible mediums include sugar flower paste (SFP) gum paste, fondant, modelling chocolate, marzipan & isomalt.
Other non-edible modelling mediums can also be used: cold porcelain (Modena), Hearty – Artista soft, polymer clay, modelling clay.
