How To Disguise Wires In Gumpaste

Sometimes you can see the wires that are inserted into a gumpaste petal a little too well. Even if you use white wires it can happen, so what should you do if you want to make them less noticeable?

You could petal dust the petal if that's appropriate, but if you want the petal to remain completely white that might not work. Here's one way to disguise the wires that I use (it's a short video, don't worry):

If you can't see the video, you basically paint over the wire with gum glue, then pat a tiny bit of corn starch onto the glue. You can also use titanium dioxide airbrush color to paint over the wire, then pat the corn starch on. Let it dry completely then brush the excess corn starch off.

Super easy, and it whitens up the area where the wires are showing.
