Flower Paste preparation

Knead your desired portion of Menina Flower Paste with Menina Satin moulding fat and it will become very extensible. Rub a smear of Menina Satin fat on your board and roll to desired thickness.
Menina Flower paste can be frozen for long periods of time. Before reusing let it come to room temperature and knead well with Menina Satin fat or corn starch.
The colours are concentrated but all the colours are compatible due to the exclusive formulation. If you find the paste is too slack which should not be the case, then the addition of pure icing sugar would suffice. In high humid conditions create the drying conditions for your finished piece; after all we are working predominantly with sugar.
Menina Flower paste is freeze thaw stable so it can be used over and over to eliminate any wastage, under the right conditions will dry quickly and should require the minimum of petal propping.
