Peonies- DVD Information
In this DVD I explain different ways to do gumpaste Peonies. You will learn to make single peonies, full ruffled peonies, open peonies, leaves and how to paint these beautiful flowers.
I posted my favorite tools used in the DVD. You don't need them all. I teach different ways to do the flower so you can choose what works best for you. Each photo has a link that will take you to the tool shown for those who want more information on the tool.
This is the peony cutter. I love the shape it gives to the flower.
For single peonies I use this cutter. Single peonies have just 2 layers and they come in different specimens.
Peony leaf cutter.
Single Peony Leaf Set
One single leaf with a double sided veiner.
If you can't find a Peony leaf veiner & cutter set, this is another veiner you can use. I show how to use it with the 4 petal leaf.
Big Peony Leaf
This is a beautiful leaf with 3 petals and the veiners that are made especially for the cutter.
I love tylose gumpaste for gumpaste flowers. I have the recipe and the tutorial on how to make this easy recipe. Plus I use the tylose to strengthen fondant and make gum glue.
This is one of those tools I can't live without. Once you use it you will see why I love it so much. Best buy ever. I won't teach a class without one!
My favorite ball tools are these ones. They are inexpensive compared to other ones plus they are light and easy to work with.
The needle tool is another of my favorite tools that I don't live without. I use it with almost all my gumpaste flowers.
Petal Dusts finish the flowers making them look completely realistic.
Floral Tape & Wire
Floral Tape is used to finish the flowers. I love paper covered wire. It holds the gumpaste in place better than other wires.
This friller tool I used in the DVD for those who want to play with veins.
This double-sided veiner makes a beautiful impression for the petals of the peony.
