Studying Gunni Eucalyptus to Recreate it in Sugar

May 23, 2018

 

I have been wanting to create another gumpaste Eucalyptus tutorial and finally decided on creating the Gunni variety after having previously created a Seeded Eucalyptus version (images below).

I was almost done with the video editing for the new tutorial when my laptop experienced technical issues, thus delaying its release. This however, turned into a surprising good as in the midst of my technical issues, I found actual Gunni Eucalyptus bunches at my local grocery store! I took full advantage and took a ton of images and also brought some home for studies.

 

I decided to completely re-do the tutorial as for the delayed tutorial I studied only images and here I had the actual Gunni variety to study and increase the realism of my next sugar project.

 

Below are study images of the Eucalyptus I brought home:
