going to be making gerbera daisies. got my cutters and paste, but no stinkin' centers .
i want them to be as realistic as possible, so i thought i'd actually break down and spend the money for a mold.
i would love feedback on either of these options:
I think i would go with the second one. They make some really good molds so there is no reason to believe that this would be anything but top notch. Just make sure you measure the flower you want to use it with, to make sure that the center will be big enough for what you have in mind.
just wanted to add that this is the mold i have. I for the blue gerbers in my photos. http://www.globalsugarart.com/product_image.php?img=19046_6XUZDTQY_19046_lg.jpg&w=200
oooh, i like that one . i like it a lot!
but, cheap gal that i am, i have an order to place with a&h (who doesn't have that one....) and i don't want to pay $7.00 to get just one thing shipped from global. i don't understand these huge shipping costs for just one little item, grrrrr.
does anybody have either of these molds and want to weigh in?
anybody? don't make me beg
While I do not have either of those molds, I generally prefer using silicone molds - they are just easier to use IMHO and can be used for a variety of mediums.
I have the first set (green plastic) and it works very well. The is a gerbera daisy cake in my photos using that center.
I have the first set, Jem set, and I love them. They work great and the detail is very noticeable. I take a sharpe point to help get them out without distorting the shape or design.
I have the second one - and I just love it.
