tea set in pastillage

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am planning for my next competition but need some suggestions from people experienced in using

pastillage.

 

i need to make a tea pot as part of a tea set. if you goggle tea pot pictures most of them are round and ball shape and squat . if you then do the same for coffee pot you get straight sides and tall. so i would like to try to do a round teapot. 

 

the competition schedule states that i can use internal supports so i can leave the mold in. but trying to find something to use is prooveing difficult. can anyone suggest anything i can use. here in the UK i have not found anything to do the job.

Could you use a plastic teapot from a child's tea set, If you can find a cheap set, you could cut off the spout and handle, cut the teapot in half and use as a mould for your pas tillage then when set, remove and sugar glue together. HTH

why not use a foam ball that you've carved a bit?

This is what I use for my teapots.Teapot is gigantic-about a foot across. Everything is gum paste, including the chain. Hand painted quote from book. LOVED this.

 

Isomalt pocket watch and hand made details. Didn't do exact rendering with this on purpose. Inspired by Chocmocakes fabulous work.

 

And these:
