Oh me, Oh my where do I start from here lets see first off do you have a recipe for boiled sugar? What type sugar will you use? Granulated or isomalt?
Heres a short list of equipment you can use:
(1). Candy Thermometer, don't cheat on this it is your most important piece!
(2). A stainless steel pan, you can use copper if you can afford it.
(3). A silpat, marble slab, or large cookie sheet. Sheet and slab have to be oiled.
(4). A rubber bulb pump, you can get and old blood pressure cuff and cut the hose and bulb off of it then get a metal tube to insert into the hose.
(5). Metal dough cutter or spatula for turning the sugar.
(6). Rubber gloves, not help from the heat but you should have them.
(7). Warming Box with 250 watt heat lamp.
. Propane Torch
(9). Hot Knife: this is one I added just make sure its a knife you don't want.
(10). Air dryer with a cool air setting.
These are the basics anymore questions just ask or PM glad to help.
