I think I'm gonna try working with this next week....for some of the accent pieces, like curley q's.....i've been having trouble with fondant breaking.
i've been looking at some articles about it...it's amazing what it can be used for....i love new stuff/.....SO EXCITING!
i suppose you could use it for the turrets on castles too.
any advice from seasoned pros?
i wonder if you could cut it with a scroll saw after it dries?...i'm pretty deft with a scroll saw.
I love working with pastillage. It's very interesting in how it can be either smooth or very rough very quickly. Large smooth pieces sound like china when they break. I found out about this the hard way.
Yes, once it is completely dry, it can be cut with a saw. I used a band saw since I don't have a scroll saw. It can also be sanded. It is extremely fragile though, so when you use the saw be sure that the piece is fully supported.
Please post pictures of your pastillage work. I would love to see it!
I love pastillage!
The only drawbacks are that you must work with it very quickly, because the surface dries so fast, and that it will curl on you if you don't keep turning it.
I love it too. I found it to be very fragile for the first couple days, but once it is completely dry, it's really strong.
Yes, I love it. I have used it for the castle's turret and wall.
Also as a plaque (sp?) to hold my fondant pieces before putting them on the top of the cake, etc.
