Help with Gum Paste/Fondant Figure Modeling!!! - Page 5

post #61 of 148
thats great, thank you! i've been thinking about this one...is it quite easy to clean the barrel? x
post #62 of 148
Very easy...I unscrew the top & bottom parts, separate the entire plunger from the barrel, then stick a wet, soapy paper towel in one end and pull it half-way out the other, then twist it around and around, then pull it all the way out, and rinse.

FlourPots...I also love your work. I would like any information you could give me. I would like to know how much tylose you ad to what amount of MMF. Thank you

Ok, but that's the one thing I can't answer about my modeling.
I don't have an exact amount.

Darker colored fondant will require more than lighter, I can tell you that.

Please add me to your list too. Your work is amazing!! I have to make a replica of Neyland Stadium in July and would really like to brush up on my modeling skills. My email is sugarrushcakes2@yahoo.com. Also, is this better than using modeling chocolate?
post #69 of 148
I've made modeling chocolate before and found it greasy, BUT, that was one recipe, using one brand of chocolate...there's many other recipes that seem to work just fine for people.

I certainly wouldn't rule out trying it again.

My advice is to experiment and see what works for you!

Anyway, when I got on CC tonight here was this post. Flourpots, would you mind sending any helpful tips you have? Your work is beautiful.

I just used her tuturial to make a dog for a cake that I haven't posted yet. She's awesome. I was able to watch it one time and recreate it without having to look back it it. icon_smile.gif Her instructions made it so easy.
