Great job dear Heather,I was very busy,so I'm so glad to be back and see such beautiful creations,I can see that the purple one is waferpaper and very nice one and others are beautiful as well❤️

Awww, thank you so much dear Petra! Originally the purple flower wasn’t supposed to be there but I had only presented two types of mediums, so at the last time I included it. And I liked it even more! I appreciate your lovely comment, thank you again and I’m so glad you are back!♥️

OMG!!! Heather, that's sooooo a fantastic Birthday gift!!! Your flowers are very beautiful!!!! The roses a splendor! Oh Heather, I think I'll "lock you up" for a while ... 👍🏻🤣🤣🤣👏 You know how it's meant ... Great dear Heather!!! ❤️😘  @Heather Bruce Sosa

😂😂😂😂I guess this lockdown has been good in that sense, I’ve had time to experiment new techniques. 
Thank you so much my dear Gabi! You make me blush and happy😊🥰

Interesting about making edible "glue" with water and cuttings from petals. Uh, I wouldn't think something like that would work. I made some edible glue yesterday from water and CMC (Tylose) powder. When I pulled it out of the fridge this morning it was the perfect consistency  and color. It was lumpy with the CMC not totally dissolving in the warm water after an hour or so. The ratio was 8T water to 1t CMC powder. Heat up the water in a microwave so that it's warm, add the CMC powder and mix as best as you can. Let it sit for 30 minutes, add 2 drops of lemon juice to increase the shelf life to 2 months. Cover it tightly and put it in the fridge overnight. That's all there is to it. Easy peasy. Yes, I'm looking forward to our next ZOOM this weekend . I'm sure there will be many more people who participate. Can't wait to "meet" you as well!  Take care my dear ❤️

Thanks so much for the recipe, Carol. Will try it!♥️

I’ll have to find out what an embossed is!! What I use as glue, and learned from an amazing Indian gentleman on YouTube, is a mixture of water with the little cuttings from petals. You place them in a little jar with top and after a day they make an amazing glue! You still have to be careful with the amount, but it’s great!!

Yes, we are all praying this “fase” for the world will end sooner than later. It’s incredible how it’s turned so many things upside down. 
Take care my dear friend. God bless you. Hope to see and meet you on the chat next Saturday!!!!!♥️

I, too, enjoy working with wafer paper but it's so easy to get it too wet and then you basically have to start all over again. I've used the Fabriliquid which is made for using with wafer paper and it does help with controlling the degree of wetness on the rice paper. I have a lot of embossers for wafer paper but you have to continually go over the paper with the embosser in order to see the design. It's almost not even worth using. I pretty much felt like it was a waste of money. But it wasn't expensive and it was worth trying.

Our quarantine is ongoing and I'm SO tired of it!!! I've been ready to return to some semblance of normal for a long time already. Our governor has not given us a prediction as to how much longer things will stay like this. I'm sure hoping to get back to a more normal way of day-to-day living as soon as possible though.

Take care and stay safe and well my dear friend @Heather Bruce Sosa. Hugs...❤️❤️

Thank you very much, dear Carol! Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it! To be sincere, it has helped me so much during this time. I was mentioning to Gabi @Icingsugarkeks that our lockdown is still active and will continue until the 17th, which means 150 days!!! 
I deeply appreciate your words, dear friend, you are always so sweet.

Its the first time I try this technique and have never used fondant, mainly because I don’t like the taste of the brand here🤷‍♀️, but I would love yo try the modeling chocolate sometime soon. But I loved wafer paper, it’s more work as you have to work on each piece individually, but very exciting to see how it develops.

I can’t wait to see your work of art!!🥰

Such a clever idea to create a cookie cake topper. The flowers look so delicate, and the petals are beautifully shaped. I also love the color combination.

Thank you very much, dear Christine. I deeply appreciate it.🥰
