How to Make a Gum Paste Rose
Michelle Anderson

After the roses are dry use a paintbrush and an assortment of petal dust shades to create gorgeous colorful flowers. Be sure to apply a darker tint to the centers of the roses to mimic nature. If you are trying to create deep red roses use colored gum paste because it is near impossible to produce a deeply colored flower with just petal dust.
