Mame's Rolled Roses




Mame’s Gumpaste Rolled Roses
Mame Reckkio Wolfe- 03/29/10

Supplies needed:

Gumpaste
 Mat for rolling out the gumpaste
 Small rolling pin
Cutting wheel
Ruler [optional]
Plastic Cross-Stitch grid
Shortening
 Gum glue [small pot with about 1/4 tsp. gumpaste and water]
 Paint brush – for gum glue
Small palette knife
Super Pearl
Stenciling brush [stiff bristled, flat cut brush]

Instructions:

 Roll out gumpaste, thinly – thin enough so that you can almost see through
Roll it into a rectangle, so that you can cut more than one strip at a time
 Using your cutting wheel,
 Cut into strips, approximately 7” x 2” [I don’t measure, I just cut]
The longer you cut the strips, the bigger the rose will be.




 It’s hard to tell from the picture, but above is a sheet of plastic cross-stitch grid from the fabric dept in most craft stores – it’s approximately 12” x 18” and is great for texturing the roses or bows!!!
 Place the grid on top of the strip and using your rolling pin, roll again to imprint the grid design


With a paint brush, designated for the glue gum,

 paint a line of glue down the center on the back side of the strip



Fold the strip in half, lengthwise…wrong side together


Gently press down just below the folded edge – but not on the folded edge – to glue together
This allows a thicker edge on the rose



 Place a little bit of gum-glue at the left-hand side – in about 1/2"


 Fold left-hand edge down – about 3/4"


Brush again with gum glue in the middle of the strip, about 2” starting at the folded down corner
Using your right hand, gather and pinch at the bottom of the strip to adhere it to the folded down corner



 Continue in this manner, brushing a little glue, then pinching & gathering until you get to the end of the strip



It kinda looks like a mushroom from the side-view

Using a small palette knife trim off the pinched part, underneath the rose and put back into a plastic bag for another rose or use

 Place rose aside to dry



Before roses are completely dry, brush with Super Pearl
 I used a stenciling brush for dusting the Super Pearl
