1. Making the Leaves for Flower

For the full tutorial see Gardenia Tutorial

Creating leaves for the flower is simple with help from Debbie. We use green sugarpaste on a veining board, then this is cut out using a Gardenia leaf cutter. A ball tool is used to thin the edges of the leaf and then things are finished off in a leaf mould to add realistic texture.

2. Making the Three Rose Leaves

Rose leaves are next and Holly Ivy pre-coloured sugarpaste is used with similar steps to the previous lesson to create these super realistic leaves.

3. Dusting the Leaves

To finish the leaves off and to add another level of realism we use a dark holly leaf coloured dust which brings out the veining and detail. Extra shading is added to the Rose leaves using a red dust, apply this very lightly to the edges of each Rose leaf.
