Its blooming white flowers

A shot of more flowers I have been working on, and how they are coming together. Some are handsculpted, like the way Chanel has the camellias as a signature flower. Others are rolled roses, which to me feels more graphic and modern, less about to make a "perfect" rose.

Hand sculpted flower in the beginning stage...

Making some graphic leaf veins with the tip of my leaf gumpaste cutter.

A rolled rose, made by taking along strip of gumpaste, rolling and pinching the edges at the same time.

When they are all done, I am going to see whether having silver painted centers will make them pop more than being all white. No offense Karl, but sometimes a little sparkle is needed!
