I have just been banging my head to come up with something. I like the idea of airbrushing the sides. Thanks for your ideas. I wonder will royal icing stick to the foamcore. I will just have to give it a try.
I'm sure it would. But I don't want to spend to much time making the dummy. I am surpised you can't buy a basic square, triangle or circle styro dummies, since cookies are so popular now. Give it time.
When I was in Kindergarten - (which was a REALLY long time ago) - I had a teacher make us each ornaments at Christmas and they were made from some kind of dough that you can varnish and keep forever - I guess its the same thing all that fake food is made of - I'll search and see if I can find a recipe.
4 cups flour; 1 cup salt; 1 1/2 cup warm water.
Mix salt and flour first. Slowly add warm water. Roll dough to approx. 1/8 inch and use cookie cutters for shapes.
Bake at 325 degrees for one hour or until hard. Use paint to decorate and varnish to preserve. This recipe is great for making ornaments and things.
SWEET! I never thought about making cookie dummies - you are so smart!
I know what you mean. I think they were made of some kind of cinnimon(?) dough. They air dried hard and looked liked cookies. Does anyone know the receipe? Thank you for your help. After reading your post it was like a bright light bulb went off.
