When I make my pooh body, legs, arms and head out of the fondant/gumpaste mixture, and I attach the head/arms and legs..............
how do you blend the base of the arm/leg/head to the body?
What is the best way to do this?
Is there a special tool?
Just use your fingers?
Thanks again for helping a newbie out!!
I would like to know as well. Mine are always sectioned.
There isn't a great way to blend fondant unless it's full on kneading. You'll want to create pieces that attach and look good. His shirt will help cover up the arm seams a bit.
I wonder if a little shortening on the fingertips would help? Haven't tried it but I will next time I make one.
I have done that too and it helps especially with hiding cracking. But doesn't fully blend the way I would like it to.
I was wondering about that too. So.... you make the figure, and then put the clothes over it so the attached areas don't show?
When i've tried the shortening on my fingers it just makes the fondant shiney where I touch it. Hopefully someone will have some good tips, but the only time i've seen the seams blended really well is when your using modeling chocolate...expensive chocolate, not the cheap stuff
