hello. i was practicing my first 3d lady figure in fondant but i dont know how to do the hair. i have a sugar gun and do you really have to press alot before you could have those long strands of hair?
hope someone could help me with this. thanks in advance.
Yes, you have to press a lot to get long strands. Mix your fondant with quite a bit of veg shortening to make it easier to press thru the gun.
I don't doit thatway - to much work!
I take a thickish piece of fondant, in the colour a want and then stretch it out with my fingers until it is the shape of a wig (long / short hair) If it is long hair, I cut the ends hap-hazardly and roll them between my fingers and then scratch it with my scalpel so that it looks like haair lying in a spesifice direction.... Hope you understand...here's some examples.
