Any thoughts on how to make headlights and windshields for a car? I tried gelatin but it didn't stick and kept sliding. Has anyone used gelatin for anything before? Thanks for the information.
how about some candy for the headlights? Is this a 3d car?
piping gel? IDK! LOL!
It would be so cool if you could use a light kit to make the headlights work! (Chanelling my inner Duff)
Sorry I was no help
Do you have some fondant handy? For the lights you could brush it with glitter dust.
My first thought was what Monkess said. Melt some type of clear hard candy. Not sure how you would get the right shape for the windshield though. You might have to somehow form your own sort of mold, especially if you want that nice curve.
Piping gell would give you that nice clear look and the gloss, but I don't know how easy it is to get that stuff smooth.
Well, I've used yellow fondant for headlights. And a really light grey for windows. hth
Just thinking about fruit snacks. They're kind of translucent. Are there any that are a really light color, like apple? Maybe something like that.
I just posted this link in another post...again, never tried it, but the person that posted this recipe says she uses it for making fondant shiny. She mentioned for car windshields specifically. Use fondant to make the headlights and windshields and then paint this "varnish" over it. Might be worth a try!
Thanks everyone for your suggestions. You are wonderful. Will try them all.
