I love making flowers. But something I haven't been able to recreate is that realistic pistol and stamen centre. Does anyone have any tips? I was thinking of dipping string in wax but that probably wouldn't hold up well... And def isn't acid free.

Random example I found on sb.com

I saw last night that they have something similar here--Prima bling flower centers or something like that. and I also bought some pearl stamen at HL last week...as well as ordered some from ebay.

Do they still make Waxy Flax? I bet that would work.
