Thanks to the wonderful world of the Internet, there’s a wealth of resources at out fingertips. From Google searches to online communities, you can find instructions and information on nearly anything you may want to know about or learn how to do.
I recently posted an online tutorial on how to make wired gum paste carnations on cakesdecor.com. They’re actually having a tutorials contest, so if you’d like to share a technique, feel free to participate. You can see my How to Make Carnations on Wires tutorial there, and I also posted three videos on YouTube.
The first shows you how to make the flower bases, which need to dry completely before proceeding. The second video shows you how to make the petals and build the carnation, and then the third video is about how to add a calyx to finish it off.
Oh, and here’s the Photobucket slideshow of all the pictures.
