I love this flower and their colors. I have been wanting to make them for a long while. I don't have the proper cutters.
I decided to search through the many cutters I do have and found a couple that would work.
After a couple of tries with a few cutters I found, I narrowed it down to the two that are working. One is from the Bamboo Orchid and the other is from the French Tulip. I trimmed the inner petals to make them thinner and elongated the outer petals and I think I am almost there. I still need to make the yellow center petals a bit thinner and smaller and the outside petals a bit wider but for my first attempt I am pretty pleased.
Yes, I want them to look just like the sample of the fresh flower I am using. I also have to work on the coloring a bit more to blend the painted lines so they blend more and look more natural.

This is really wonderful learning to make gumpaste flowers from a fresh sample.
