Step 5: Make cattails and grass out of gum paste
I forgot to take photos of making the cattails and grass but I have a photo of them drying. I hung them off of a light fixture to dry. :)
What I did was wrap heavy wire in green floral tape and then mold the brown part out of gum paste and slide it on. For the grass I cut out a long strip of gum paste, laid the floral wire down and then folded the gum paste strip over the wire.
Once they were dry I painted them with the gel color/vodka mixes.
