1. Making the leaves

In this lesson, Paul makes the leaves using green flower paste and a nice leaf mould. To get a realistic look he uses a ball tool while resting them on a foam mat.

4. Dusting the leaves and flowers

Paul now adds the calyx to the flowers to finish them off to then move onto dusting. Make sure to roll out the paste very thinly and perhaps use a ball tool to add some movement.

5. Finishing the flowers

Just a small paintbrush and a couple of nice dusts are all you need to really bring them all to life. A good tip is to have some tin foil underneath you as you work so that you can reclaim any dust that falls off as you go.
