I have been wanting to make a gum paste peony FOREVER but have never had the time/need/courage to do so until I decided to
The center part of the flower with the first few rows of petals attached hanging like bats to dry. You can see some of the petals drying on spoons in the background too.
All of the petals I made for each flower that were drying on a flower former prior to attaching them to the center portion of the flower.
My next adventure in gumpaste will be to make Gum paste Magnolias.
