I have a large and a small one...different brand. I found mine at an art supply store. The transparent ones are great because you can place a pattern underneath, if your pattern is bold and your gum paste is thin.

Do you have trouble with the "grid lines" coming off on your fondant? I bought one (don't remember what brand right now) and it was great for a few times, then the lines started coming off on the fondant! Now, I cover it with freezer paper and it works great! I don't have to use shortening, cornstarch or confectioners sugar on anything! Clean up is easy too because I just toss it.

Hmm anyone that has this one, know if it is a non stick surface or if it slides around? I was gonna get the green board from GBA but this is so much cheaper.

WOW! I have been looking for something like this. The price is reasonable too. Thanks so much for sharing this. thumbs_up.gif

With the one I linked to, the grid lines do not come off on the fondant because they are part of the mat itself. They are not printed on. I've been using them for a couple years.

As far as sliding around. If you don't put any cornstarch or powdered sugar on the mat it will not slide around. But it will still peel right off without problems of it sticking to the mat. If you want to be able to slide it around, dust lightly with PS or CS and you'll have no problem.

Thanks, artscallion for your link. I use The Mat, (which I love), for my fondant. But I have tried several different surfaces to cut out fiddly little gumpaste or fondant things and I think this will do the trick. I just ordered mine and the price was very reasonable. I'm looking forward to its coming in the next 3 days.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
