This little tea cup was made out of gum paste that was placed inside a dessert crystal cup. I found that if I flipped the cup upside down once the gum paste was inside the dish, I could press the dish just like a cookie cutter and get a nice smooth edge to the cup. I used super pearl dust for the inside and luster dust for the green and pink. ( I know, it looks peach, but it's pink) I thinned down gold luster dust down with vodka and painted it around the edge of the plate and cup, and also the stem of the cup. Added tiny ribbon gum paste roses and white flowers for a 3-D affect.

That's always my problem - I just can't wait to see if it's worked and of course, it would have, if I'd just kept my mucky little mitts off it for a while longer!

Thank you Katy....patience??? I'm about the most impatient person in the world, but after having one after another break on me because of my impatience, it's like either let it dry, or quit making them. Too many times I have flipped these upright before they are ready to paint, only to have them topple over in a few minutes and then break. So, I have learned to make several all at the same time so that they HAVE to set up and dry....and at least I'll have backups just in case my impatience kicks in again! lol!
