A perfect lightweight inner platform used for all flower growth stages from fully opened roses to grand fluffy peonies, lotus seed pods, a much faster beginning for the perfect lightweight sugar flowers.
Each half-sphere is made from lightweight cotton material. There is a central hole located in the base of each. Hot glue can be used to firmly secure a floral wire inside.

(Available in 2 graduating sizes) EACH NUMBERED SIZE IS SOLD SEPARATELY
Half-sphere (1) Set of 6 – 3cm (Height) by 6cm (Width) – (1 3/16” H by 2 3/8” W)
The larger (half-sphere 1) is perfect for attaching unwired petals too, creating a lightweight large bloom such as David Austin styled roses or Peonies.
Robert recommends the smaller (half-sphere 2) for a variety of smaller closed or just opening David Austin styled roses or smaller Peony flower heads.
Robert designed these semi-spheres with the following benefits in mind.
Speed – You can cover both half-sphere sizes in paste, create an outer rim of petals then fill the inner platform with angled younger petals or simply add as little as 5 cupped petals for an opening peony bud. These half-spheres will save on time limiting the number of inner petals used for larger unwired blooms.
Extremely lightweight – perfect for arranging numerous finished peonies, roses, and closed flowers for safe/stable cake designs.
Tip – If fully immersing a finished unwired sugar peony, rose, etc, into Robert’s matt or satin setting glaze, please ensure the whole sphere is airtight and completely sealed in the paste before applying petals. (leaving no exposed areas of the cotton sphere showing)
