I still have to perfect my roses, hydrangea, peony, ranuculous, lily but I think I'm quite satisfied with my filler flowers. It is the easiest one to make, I know. So I thought I'd share with you all how I made these filler flowers.
Here's the step-by-step instructions with pictures on how I made my filler flowers:
Filler flowers can be made in so many ways. I have tried the step-by-step instructions below with the use of a cutter and without a cutter. I prefer using a cutter for ease and much nicer look of the petals.
Roll a piece of paste into a ball, about 1-1/2 cm in diameter.
You can change the size to your preferance.
Make one end into a pointed cone.
With the use of a pointed tool make a hole by inserting the toll into the center as shown in the picture.
Make five small equal incisions to make the petals.
Pinch the base of the cone using your fingers to flatten.
And then using a small non-stick rolling pin,
roll out the base until it becomes thin forming a "witch hat".
Get your medium blossom cutter and place it over the top of the "witch hat".
Cut out the blossom shape and remove the excess gumpaste.
Edible glue: I used 2 tablespoons of warm water to a quarter teaspoon of Tylose Powder and allow the Tylose powder to melt.
The paste should be very fine.
Transfer to a thicker/softer petal pad, using the small ball tool, very gently ball the petal until a gentle cup shape is obtained.
Glue in the middle of the flower.
Paint the end of the flower using a flat brush with green petal dust.
