Orchard Products Rose / Flower CALYX Cutter R12
Rose / Flower CALYX Cutter R12
[This R12 Calyx cutter is manufactured by Orchard Products. It is perfect for a Rose Calyx but can also be used for many other flower backs. It can be cut out either flat or by using the 'Mexican Hat' technique for a more realistic appearance. It can also be used to make Fantasy Flowers or quick Lilies or Syephanotis. Perfect for filler flowers in your sugar flower sprays.
The R12 Calyx measures 36mm.
Instructions and Tips for Use
It can be used with both the 5 petal flower cutter and the single rose petals to complete beautiful sugar roses. In my experience this cutter works best when used with the 5 petal flower cutter F7, but it depends how much emphasis you want to put on the calyx. You could also use it with the F8 or F6A cutters.
All Orchard Products cutters cut cleanly without the need for 'scrubbing' on the board. They are non-stick and keep their shape and will not lose shape even in the dishwasher or in boiling water. They are easily cleaned and meet EEC regulations for food contact. They do not corrode and with the small handle on the back are comfortable to hold and easy to use. Great value for money.
