In this tutorial we will be guiding you through How to make Succulent Flowers using FMM Cutters.

SUCCULENT 1

  • Roll out your green flower paste approximately 2mm thick on your non stick - mat. Cut out 1 each size of your FMM 5 petal rose cutters.
  • Place on your FMM Firm Foam Former Pad and soften the edges with the large end of your FMM Ball Tool ensuring your ball tool is half on the edge of your flower petal and half on the foam pad.
  • Roll a ball of paste to make a bud. It must be small enough to sit inside the smallest of your 5 petal shapes. Make a 3-way incision in the top of your ball using your FMM Knife and Scriber Tool.
  • Place your smallest 5 petal rose shape on your non stick mat and cut off 1 of your petals using your FMM Knife and Scriber Tool. Wet the centre of your 4 petal flower shape with a little water and place your flower bud in the centre. Bring the petals up around the bud overlapping each one as you move round the bud.
  • Wet the centre of the 50mm rose petal and place the bud with the petals you have just made in the centre. Pinch each of the petals with your thumb and forefinger to shape your petals. Bring your petals up and stick them to the centre of your flower with a little water over lapping each petal. Repeat this process for the final layer.
  • Place in your flower former and use pieces of kitchen towel to separate the petals.
  • Once dry, dust the edges of the petals with red food colour dust/tint.
  • Boil water in a saucepan and wave your flower over the top to blend your food colour dust/tint. Be careful not to burn your hand!

SUCCULENT 2

  • Roll out your green flower paste approximately 2mm thick on your non - stick mat. Cut out 2 of the smallest Bridal Lily petals and 1 of each size of the other 2 sizes.
  • Place on your FMM Firm Foam Former Pad and soften the edges with the large end of your FMM Ball Tool ensuring your ball tool is half on the edge of your flower petal and half on the foam pad.
  • Roll a ball of paste to make a bud. It must be small enough to sit inside the smallest of you 5 petal shapes. Make a 3-way incision in the top of your ball using your FMM Knife and Scriber Tool.
  • Place your smallest Bridal Lily petal shapes on your non stick mat and cut off the 3 rounded petals using your FMM Knife and Scriber Tool. Wet the individual petals with a little water approximately halfway down and place them around your flower bud overlapping each one as you move round the bud.
  • Place your largest Bridal Lily petal in your flower former and wet the centre. Stick the middle size petal on top with a little water then do exactly the same with your smallest flower petal shape and your bud. Finally use small pieces of kitchen towel to separate the petals.
  • Once dry dust the edges of the petals with pink food colour dust/tint.
  • Boil water in a saucepan and wave your flower over the top to blend your food colour dust/tint. Be careful not to burn your hand!

SUCCULENT 3

  • Roll out your green flower paste approximately 2mm thick on your non - stick mat. Cut out 1 of each size of your FMM Calyx cutters.
  • Place on your FMM Firm Foam Former Pad and using your FMM Ball Tool drag the large end of your FMM Ball Tool from the point of the petal shape down in to the centre. You will see the petals start to lift and the calyx will start to form a shape.
  • Place your smallest calyx shape on your non stick mat and cut off 1 of the petals using your FMM Knife and Scriber Tool. Wet the centre of your 4 petal Calyx shape and twist them together to make a spiky flower centre.
  • Place your largest calyx shape in your flowers former and wet the centre with a little water. Secure the next size on top and again add a little water then secure your spiky centre with water on top. Use small pieces of kitchen towel to separate the petals.
  • Once dry dust the edges of the petals with aubergine food colour dust/tint.
  • Boil water in a saucepan and wave your flower over the top to blend your food colour dust/tint. Be careful not to burn your hand!
