These are artists’ palette knives that we are using for our painting: you can source these from any art store. You can use a different-sized palette knife depending on the size of the flower that you’d like to paint. Here, I am using a small palette knife – size 1 – to paint a chrysanthemum.
Decant your buttercream onto a flat surface such as a plastic chopping board or glass tray to do your painting.
