How To Create Monochrome Painted Flowers

With Nichola Fisher

Difficulty Medium

Broken Video?

Watch Nichola in this lovely tutorial and find out how she creates this beautiful black and white hand-painted sugar flower arrangement set on a green and gold textural background. In this lesson you will be shown the best way how to use various cutters to make the leaves and flowers, how to paint fluid lines to create a monochrome effect onto the sugar decorations, how to create a painted gold brushstroke effect background and lastly how to arrange it into a showstopping floral design suitable for a plaque or side of a celebration cake. The design was influenced by different floral monochrome styles of tiles and wedding cakes that can be adapted by using different shaped cutters and adding lots of vibrant colour instead for a different look. For more hand-painting tutorials and wedding cake design ideas then check out our other videos below.
