what is best?
So, to make the pooh, piglet, tigger figures, is it best to use all fondant?
mix fondant with gumpaste?
or just gumpaste?
when do you use what?
Thanks again.....from the newbie!
I would use a 50/50 fondant gumpaste mix. Gumpaste dries quickly, fondant dries slowly so a 50/50 mix is just right! I sound like the narrator to Goldilocks! But really it will give you enough time. Another thing you can use (my favorite) is tyrose powder. You buy it online and mix it in your fondant. It's a thickening agent but it hardens the fondant. Good Luck!
I have made a few figures, you can check my pictures.. I like to use fondant/gumpaste mix.. about 50/50,
to me, it gives me a little more work time, the plain gumpaste drys to fast and cracks...
this is just me, use whatever works best for you...
Hope this helps
I also use a 50/50 mix for figurines, it just works soooo much better
I use 50/50 too... and I use MMF with mine.
I love doing figures and probably go a little more than 50 in gumpaste to fondant... 60/40. A lot of my figures stand, so the little bit more gumpaste gives me a harder finished product that has less chance of falling over, sagging, etc.
I was wondering this too, thanks for posting, now I know the answer too!
