All hand-sculpted and painted.
Lotus flower and lilly pad are wafer paper painted with Cocoa Butter and are completely free-floating.
Frog is sculpted from fondant, gum paste and royal icing painted with Cocoa Butter.
Fish are reverse-painted with Cocoa Butter on the inside of the glass.
"Pebbles" are edible molecular gastronomy caviar.
Now that Series 1 on Wafer Paper is done and to the presses, I've started Series 2.
