I was asked to make a red high heel shoe and cake for a birthday on Sunday, Oct. 7. I bought a package of gumpaste and started working on a Manolo Blanik shoe (picture of the shoe I'm trying to copy is in the link below).
I know that the gumpaste needs a few days to harden so I started earlier this week. Well, guess what? Since it was my first shoe, it cracked in half somehow and off I went to the store again this morning for another package of gumpaste..with time running out for the shoe to dry and harden.
I started working on the shoe again and everything turned out fine...until I tried to use Wilton's Color Mist in red to make the shoe more red. Due to my inexperience, it did not distribute evenly and now has the look of dried paint running down the sides of the shoe.
My questions: Is there a way to remove at least SOME of the spray paint off of gumpaste? If not and I have to start over, is there time for it to try in the next 36 hours?
Thanks for ANY help, suggestions, or ideas!!
