My problem with gloves isn't finding cotton ones, it is more finding one that fit my small hands with out a bunch of extra hanging off my fingers. I figure that would probably get in the way when trying to work.
I do have a mini blow torch (for creme brulee's and I also have an alcohol lamp.
My brother is pretty crafty, so I've given him directions to make the box and will let him figure out the best way to do it. After the convention I had to build my cash supply back up since I did ALOT of shopping. I'm getting to a point where I feel okay making purchases that I don't have to have but want, with out having to worry about how much I am spending. I also need to set up an area in my cake room to work on this stuff, which means clean it out again.
Loucinda, I got your PM but misplaced your email address. I do have some directions I found online for building a box, just don't remember where I got them.
I know I'm just being chicken, and I'll give it a chance since I spent so much money on the stuff. I just haven't had a chance or made time to play with anything that I got at the convention, not just the Isomalt stuff. I went from teaching class two nights a week before the convention, to a full time job working 45-55 hours a week plus still teaching twice a week after the convention. It was a big change andh as been wearing me out. Any free time I have I haven't wanted to do anything with. I'm hoping to change that soon.
Thanks for the information. I'm definetly storing it for when I do pull out the Isomalt and stuff.
