sugar peony, part 1

This is my first attempt at making a gum paste peony. Not too bad, eh? I finally got dying gum paste down, as you can see in this pretty peachy pink shade.  Constructing peonies is definitely much more time consuming than roses or any other flowers, in my opinion. The process took about two nights since there is a lot of drying time required to get the shape of each petal down.
