Hi - I want to make a fondant drape that will look like a hand towel - (or a workout towel). Any ideas for how I can create a "towel-y" texture on the fondant?

Thanks,
Tiffany

Use a sea sponge that is slightly damp and dip it into RI and sponge it on. Or you can use a brush and do a stipple effect on it.

I have not tried this but another gal on here used a green bristly pad, ya know the kind ya use for scouring crusty dishes? She said she just had a brand new one and pushed it into her 'towel' for that kinda sorta 'fuzzy' look.

poke it repeatedly with a toothpick pulling it up a lil (yea tht is kinda tedious! but that's the kinda stuff we do!)

How about using some dessicated coconut....assuming the towel is white.

... bundle a few toothpicks together and tie them with a rubber band to make it quicker and easier... just a thought - I was born for comfort not hard work! icon_lol.gif

Hi Tiffany,

I made the towel below using one of those nylon scrubbing "balls" for the kitchen - new of course. It was really easy. I left the picture big so you could see the detail (hopefully).
