How to Make Sugar Gum Paste Flowers : Making a Full-Sized Rose with Gum Paste

Posted on

We're going to be making a full rose in thisclip.

Using the same method we've used for all the others.

In the center we have therose bud with one layer of petals.

Then we made our medium rose with the second layerof petals.

And now we're going to add our third layer of petals so we can get our fullrose.

So just as before I've rolled out a thin piece of gum paste.

I'm cutting the petals.

Bringing in my petal pad.

Softening the edges with the large ball.

Going to flip the whole thing over.

And fromthis side we're going to cup in all five petals.

This is what gives that rose that fullness.

I'm going to flip it over, back over, and we're going to cup the center.

Going to adda little bit of egg white in the center.

And just like we've done on our last layers, wecenter it on our stem, and bring in our petal support, and drop it down in there.

And we're going to start on onepetal and we're going to bring it right up in between the gap that?s open.

Now we'rejust going to press it down at the bottom.

We want it to fall open.

We're going to cometo the other side where the other gap was.

We're going to get under there and we're goingto pinch that.

Now we're going to put some more egg white on the other remaining petals.

And we're just going to tuck them in and peelthem back to make our full rose.

We'll remove the support.

Give all the leaves a nice littlepinch to secure them.

Make sure they are all secure at the base.

And we're going to letthat dry up side down.

And that's how you make a full rose.
