Swear By: Scratch Gumpaste vs. Pre-made Gumpaste - Page 2

post #16 of 17
I've used the extra thick fun foam (great when traveling to classes) and it works well. I only use the white, as sometimes the colors can come up onto the white paste. I find that a light dusting of CS helps so that things don't stick.

The new Wilton plastic ball tool is much better than the old green one that needed to have the seam sanded off, but I still swear by my metal tool icon_lol.gif

As long as the paste is properly made & rested, it should be fine. Try dipping the ball tool in some corn starch before using it.

If it's humid, cold, or the paste is sticky, it will tear. The corn starch helps to stop that.

Thanks Rae.
