Rubber stamps and fondant

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I saw a Youtube video showing the use of rubber stamps on fondant. Don't know why I hadn't thought of this before. Has anyone used this technique? If so, do you like it and have any tips? And why in the world are the rubber stamps so EXPENSIVE!! I bought some at Michael's from the $1.00 bin but some of the regular priced stamps were $20 and up!! Boy, it sure does cost to have a hobby these days!

No, you can use the $1.00 ones but I was just venting about the ones that cost so much! The $1.00 ones work just fine. I was worried if the rubber on the stamps are food safe or not.

There is a website that sells food safe rubber stamps, i think it's called sweetstamping or something to that effect.

There have been threads about it in the past, you may have to do a google search to find them though.

I don't think the rubber stamps made for crafting are food safe. I remember seeing a thread on this subject a while back.
However, I have used them to imprint fondant using cling wrap between the stamp and the fondant. Worked great for me.

I've used them some. I use one in particular more often it is a script "happy birthday". I just paint gel food coloring on and stamp onto the fondant.

Found it! Called sweetstampen.com! Thanks. I did see this thread too about the stamps. I did a search before using "rubber stamps" and nothing came up.

Awesome! I will try this. I saw on another thread that they just dip them in hot water and use the ones from the craft stores. I'll try and see what happens. Thanks!

I am glad you found the website and at least one thread.

I know the previous threads had some discussion about it, but it's hard to search on this site. Google is a lot better if you put cakecentral and then the topic you are searching for and it will pull up the threads.

The acrylic clear stamps are ok to use. I use those. They can also be found at your local craft stores.

The stamps from Global Sugar Art are the same brand found at craft stores, they are just the clear stamps.

I tried thinning the gel color with clear vanilla and had a bit of a difficult time, I had to wipe the stamp every other stamp or so.

I hadn't thought of painting onto the stamp itself - good idea.

If you use the saran wrap, you may lose some detail for stamping color.
