Oh good quesitons. I was wondering if it was worth the price and could you use it without purchasing their dispenser?

go to thier website and look at some of things they have done with it - I TOTALLY LOVE IT!!

the 1lb bag does a lot of stuff - seems to last a while. I really wish someone else would post about how to use/store/keep the "left overs" because it makes so much in a batch.

I think it makes the BEST bows and writing is PERFECT. You can print out almost ANYTHING and trace overit with the sugar veil and turns out perfect. It doesn't dry completely hard so its plyable and moveable without breaking - the stuff ROCKS!

You do NOT have to get the air pen - you can use regular piping bags and tips.

I will recommend the DVD to really see what you can do and avoid mistakes etc...

Thanks for your insight. I have been reading a little about it but wasn't exactly clear how it worked or what it did. I just knew it was good for lace patterns. I will have to look more into it. But thank you thumbs_up.gif

From the Sugar Veil Website:


What is the shelf life of the mixed SugarVeil® Confectionery Icing?

Once mixed, SugarVeil may be stored covered in the refrigerator for at least 3 weeks.

Well, the kit is expensive for what you get - appears to be an aquarium pump and some other off the shelf items in a plastic box. I thought that the items themselves, maybe . . .maybe could reasonably be priced at $79.99. The Sugarveil itself is OK I guess. I just wasn't jazz about it enough to even play with it.

If you're just buying the SugarVeil and NOT the kit, you'll be happy.

There was one one Ebay earlier . . .

It really is great to work with. However, it WILL eventually dry hard and brittle.

I used it for my guitar strings. I piped lines and let them set up for a few minutes. I was able to actually wrap the strings around the tuners. Very short window of work time, tho. Soon, the strings would get dry and brittle.

Also, the shelf life of the powder is limited. After about 6 months, it won't work properly.

Can you use small quantities of the sugarveil? I am not sure if it comes in powdered form or already in a paste where you can just pipe. So if you purchase the 1lb bag of it, can you just use a small quantity or do you have to use it all up b/c once opened it only has a short shelf life? Thanks icon_redface.gif

It's a powder. Just mix up what you need.
