i've PM'ed a few people before I realized that this was the contest subject. seeing as it's over maybe someone could help me out. i have to have it for this sunday & they want shiny (not luster) but patent leather shiny, how can i do this.
thanks so much!!!
Not that I`ve done a shoe, but I`ve seen Buddy of KakeBoss (I use the `K` so it doesn`t jump to the link) use a clothes steamer. This makes fondant shiny.
i seen that the other day, thank you !!!! now i have to find someone that has one haha
How about using confectioners glaze to make it shiny.
Gum arabic and water brushed on makes patent leather. I got mine from Global Sugar Art if memory serves.
Someone else on here had suggested using the steam from a tea kettle for smaller objects. I bet that would work for your shoe! Good luck!
I use Americacolor or Wilton Black gel colors mixed with vodka to make mine shine.
oh thank you all soooo much!!!
