you will need:*
lollipop sticks (optional)
*For the markers, you will need the following colors (possibly more depending on your preference): red, pink, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple. The food writers you find in the craft store may not have such variety. I like Americolor Gourmet Writers, found here at amazon.com or, if you go to Americolor’s web site, click on “Links” for tips on where to buy.
- Let marshmallows sit uncovered at room temperature for an hour to stiffen on the outside. This limits the bleeding.
- Use the very tips of the markers for the finest detail.
- See below for tips on drawing the flowers. Don’t overthink the drawing and don’t worry about precision….there’s a lot of wiggle room here. Your flowers will be gorgeous, I’m sure!
1. outline a sort of circle-ish oval for the middle and four petals with the yellow
2. fill with yellow (without definition, this will look like a yellow blob)
3. use the orange to make highlights and define the petals
4. use the green to draw a stem and leaves
1. use the green to draw a stem and leaves
2. make a bunch of random dots in an oval shape (with tapered top) with the purple marker (unfortunately, I don’t have a lavender marker, or I’d use that…if desired, add some blue dots, too)
1. outline the tulip shape with yellow
2. fill with yellow
3. use the red marker to make highlights and definitions
4. draw the stem and leaves with green
1. use hot pink and just draw a bunch of mini lines in a bowl shape
2. do the same with red lines on top
3. draw stem and leaves with green
