Confectioners Glaze.... This can NOT be edible!!!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I bought confectioners glaze as I had seen it referred to and used by others. It came in and is a honesy color (first alarm bell) and just now I opened it and it smells like NAIL POLISH REMOVER! (second alarm bell). This stuff cant possibly be edible is it? DOes it "dry"? Does the smell go away? Does it have a taste? Will it discolor my white? Will it "make" my black run into my white?


I am now TERRIFIED to apply this stuff to my converse shoe.

I've never used it, but it sounds like it went bad.

Try it on a small area first to make sure it's what you want. Confectioners glaze dries to a high shine unless you cut it with conf. glaze thinner. Yes, it stinks icon_smile.gif That's normal. It does say on the container that it's FDA approved. Yes, it smells like lacquer.

THanks Jen. I have to say your post is reassuring to me but I am PETRIFIED!!!! hahah. I have brushed it on to two other gum paste items I had lieing around that never made it onto cake and will see how those finish tomorrow.

I have put so much into this shoe that I would HATE to damage it just to make it shiny! I think at best I will use the glas to make the white "plastic" parts of the shoe shiny!

Wish me luck!

My best wishes to you.

Just a warning.... don't get it on your clothes or work area. Any brushes you use will probably be junk icon_sad.gif Conf. thinner does get it off brushes I believe, but usually I just use a "junk" brush.

Ok, I've never heard of this--what would you use this for??

I dip some of my flowers and most of my foliage in a 50/50 mix of conf. glaze/thinner. LOVE the look on the foliage. Straight confectioners glaze leaves a high gloss shine when it dries. After it's dry you don't smell it at all.

I dust and dip icon_smile.gif

CRAP! TOo late... hahhaha I ruined two brushes on my "tests" BUT my tests have dried and the shine is amazing!! but now I am torn because the "honey" color does definitely take away from the white a bit...

Still on the fence about whether or not I will use it on this one but I do look forward to using it on future projects. I assume they make a clear version but I just didnt know enough to buy it. And of course when I ordered this one there was no image. icon_sad.gif

I'm not sure if there is a clear version.

Anyone know?

I've not used it straight on white flowers, but have used the 50/50 and they dipped just fine. No strange color added....

Do you think I could thin it with water? or something around the house?
post #13 of 26
I really don't think so. It needs to be food safe and water won't do it. I can tell you where to get the thinner if you PM me.
