Fondant/Gumpaste Cosmetics

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I need a video tutorial for fondant or gumpaste cosmetics (lipstick, nail polish etc.). If not a video, I need a detailed manual with Picts..  PLEASE and THANK YOU in advance!!!

I really think you can do it without one! You look at a make-up cake, and all the colors and shapes. Tint your gum paste in all the colors you will need. If a black color is for all the pieces that would be plastic, tint about 100 grams or gum paste black, if it is for a lipstick or nail polish, tint about 20 grams pink or red. For a single blusher or eye shadow, 10 grams or so. 

 

Then look at the shapes of the base pieces. The eye shadow rectangle? Make a black rectangle about 4 mm thick, by rolling it out, and then cutting it to shape with a cutter. Is the lipstick a cylinder? Roll out a fat tube of black, cut off the top and bottom to make it flat...

 

I could go on and on, and I have never seen a tutorial. I did do a make-up cake, I just did it, with no pictures to look at, at all. Look at your own make-up for inspiration, or google "make-up cake".

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Hi Olenmetra,

 

Like Anna said, you can use your own make up as a model. I did that with my vanity cake. I also found help with this tutorial:

Here is a picture of the cake I made and maybe it will help you with the other elements. I am always on the lookout for things I can re purpose for caking and found the plastic insets that came in a box of men's toiletries perfect for making the perfume bottles. The make up brush is just gumpaste and I scored it with a wire brush to get the bristle effect.

I hope this helps you,

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

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