ok, I'm pretty new to the whole bow making scene... so forgive me if this sounds silly (I actually had to go to rabom to see what you were talking about)
But craft stores sell the little molds for shapes like this... they also sell resin that you can mix (or you can get it at a hardware store) Another option is polimer clay which would probably be a little easier to work with. Just mold, cure and paint.

I have been really wanting to make those too. I would suggest polymer clay, and there are some great video tutorials on youtube.

I think most people go the route of polymer to make center pieces. If you look around I'm sure you can find resins wholesale. Working with polymer clay even with the molds is an artwork in itself. It takes time to build up the skill to have really awesome looking pieces.

HTH!

Thenamegame.com sells resins wholesale. I am not sure of minimums and such. But they sell the same resins that rabom sells. HTH

Looks pretty good to me for the first time.
If you haven't already you should check out some of the videos on youtube. There are some talented people on there willing to share their ideas with you.
